Much of the extremely rare performance footage presented in this video has never before been publicly seen and documents the diversity of a music which was a personal as a fingerprint yet as universal as the blues itself. John Jackson, Pink Anderson, Rev. Gary Davis and the charismatic Josh White manifest different aspects of the rich Piedmont ragtime/blues tradition. In Memphis, echoes of the Mississippi Delta could be heard in the music of Furry Lewis, while the delightfully eccentric Jesse Fuller and the introspective Robert Pete Williams embody country blues which defies regional identity.
