Billy Jenkins Documentary Goes Online

(The Blues) The long-awaited documentary about British jazz and blues guitarist Billy Jenkins has been released online. The Religion Is The Blues was directed by Antonio Rui Ribeiro.

The film covers Jenkins' leftfield take on the blues, his bone-dry sense of humour - and his other life as a conductor of humanist funerals. Jenkins explains: "As the music industry as we knew it is dying, I thought I'd go out and do some funerals."

He's steered his own musical path in a career going back to the 70s, including work with his Voice Of God Collective. Along the way he's gathered fans including comedian Stewart Lee, singer Claire Martin and promoter Simon Thackray, all of whom appear in the film. Read more here.
