Storyline

Delta Rising tells the story of Clarksdale and its importance to the blues, America's classical music. This story is told through the experiences of various musicians in and around Clarksdale, some world renown, some simply weekend players - but all deeply committed to this style of music and this extraordinary place. With Morgan Freeman guiding the journey we witness first hand what musicians like Mose Allison, Willie Nelson, Pinetop Perkins, James Super Chikan Johnson, James Montgomery, Ruby Wilson, Scott Bomar and many others feel about this Mecca, this home of the delta blues. Written by Michael Afendakis
