This video is an excerpt of the documentary “See You in Hell, Blind Boy.” This is engaging film that follows New York City based writer/artist George’s Pratt’s search for the forgotten roots and living legacy of Blues music in the Mississippi Delta in 1993. Director Steven Budlong seamlessly weaves together rare archival footage of the sharecropping South with performances by Blues stalwarts Muddy Waters, Skip James, Mississippi John Hurt and Howlin’ Wolf along with interviews and performances with the few remaining itinerant musicians of folk roots genre. Pratt’s expressive ink drawings and moody photographs further embellish the true color of the bluesman’s mythical journey. Particularly fascinating are the visits to the homes of Mississippi John Hurt and Jack Owens.
