Blues Sidemen The Focus Of New Documentary

(The Blues) Pinetop Perkins, Willie 'Big Eyes' Smith and Hubert Sumlin are the focus of a documentary exploring the world of blues sidemen. The pianist, drummer and guitarist became known as collaborators with Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, and the movie Sideman: Long Road To Glory explores their contribution to modern music.

Producers say: "Sidemen takes us on the road with Pinetop, Willie and Hubert, three of our last direct links to the origins of the blues, as they share the incredible stories about each of their personal histories.

"From their upbringings on Delta plantations of the Jim Crow south to lives spent on the road in the shadow of two of the biggest figures in music, their stories are not only a part of music history, but American history as well.

"We can't help but fall in love with these three endearing men as we experience all the trials and triumphs of these remarkable lives." Read more and watch the trailer here.
