The Blues - Red, White and Blues
Filmfest 2006

Mike Figgis joins musicians such as Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, B.B. King (and many others), performing and talking about the music of the early sixties British invasion that reintroduced the blues sound to America... Figgis’ film examines the circumstances of this vibrant period. Figgis himself participated, albeit in a minor way, in this period of history, playing in a blues band with Bryan Ferry, a band that was the nucleus for the first Roxy Music... A series of musical interviews with the key players of the blues movement is augmented with a live session at the famous Abbey Road recording studios. www.pbs.org
