Got this email from Corky Siegel the other day, giving me a heads up on the perfomances this weekend at the Chicago Blues fest (would have been a good weekend to go)
Also giving a heads up on this so I'll paste it and the link to view the trailer, looks good!

Corky Featured In New Documentary

White, Black & Blues is a feature-length documentary from filmmaker John Anderson that is nearing completion.

White, Black & Blues chronicles the cultural fusion of the 1960’s that brought middle class white kids to inner city blues joints. Against all odds they were accepted by their idols and mentored by them, during a time when racial boundaries were just beginning to crumble.

This small group which included Elvin Bishop, Michael Bloomfield, Paul Butterfield, Barry Goldberg, Nick Gravenites, Harvey Mandel, Steve Miller, Charlie Musselwhite and Corky Siegel, sought out their musical heroes and ultimately established working relationships with them.

The result was a worldwide “bluesquake” whose roots can be directly traced back to Chicago’s rough and tumble club scene and the local teenagers crossing racial and generational lines. They brought the blues to the next generation.

View the trailer and learn more about the film, which is scheduled for release in Fall, 2010.
