This was a personal project that I started in 2001 and continued with it through 2004. I tell myself that it will never be complete. My goal - to document and archive the stories of the Delta Blues musicians - their music - but also their cultural stories and what gave birth to their music.
Sadly many of the musicians that I interviewed have passed away including Sam Carr who died September 21, 2009.
Sam told me:
"I lived a rich man's life in a poor man's shoes"
Rest in peace Sam - we love you.
