Blues Music on Film

American blues music has created the genres that have been dominating the music world for the past 70 years. Today we'll go on a trip that covers the evolution of that music, from its roots (Brother Where Art Thou?, 2001), to its soul (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, 2020), its theft (Cadillac Records, 2008), its rise (Ray, 2004) and its acceptance into the mainstream (The Blues Brothers, 1980). Together with Gil are two longtime members of the show, musician Bridget Hall and avid blues fan Shay Golan.
