This August, PBS stations across the country will air Blues Story, a documentary that features numerous living icons of the blues for the first time telling their own story, in words and song. Featuring a who's who of blues performers giving their own first person accounts of the origin and power of this music, the film includes newly-shot, exclusive footage of Bobby "Blue" Bland, R.L. Burnside, Ruth Brown, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Koko Taylor, Little Milton, Pinetop Perkins, Rufus Thomas, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and many more. Blues Story is the result of five years of filming throughout the Mississippi Delta, in Memphis, Chicago and other regions.
