I Got the Blues in Austin
Dir. Richard Jernigan and Ellen Spiro, 2010, 40 mins.
I Got the Blues in Austin, with Chris Jagger and John Peyton, is a spin-off of their nationally syndicated radio show The Blueseum of Fine Art. Chris and John take 93 year old blues legend and Muddy Waters' pianist Pinetop Perkins to see the Rolling Stones and brother Mick Jagger backstage at the Stones show at Zilker Park in Austin where they reveal stories from the heydays of Chicago blues. Stones' keyboardist and music director, Chuck Leavell and Pinetop jam backstage. Long time Howlin Wolf guitarist, Hubert Sumlin remembers playing with the Stones at Madison Square Garden on Let It Bleed. Miss Lavelle White sings the first song she ever learned. Young guitarist virtuoso Lucas Martin plays Freddie King. Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton of Double Trouble recount the tragic day their front man Stevie Ray Vaughan died and blues aficionados Derek O'Brien and Susan Antone help pave the way.
