Video Spotlight: Born in Chicago

Written by Linda Park | Friday, Sep 27, 2013

The documentary Born in Chicago screened at SXSW Film this year. John Anderson's film recounts Chicago in the 1960s when young white musicians were learning the blues from legendary players like Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf.

SXSW Music put together a panel of the key players, and it was a fascinating look at a revolutionary time in music.

Join moderator Bill Bentley for a trip down memory lane with Barry Goldberg, Corky Seigel and Harvey Mandel as they recount the time and the experience of their place in history.

We hope Paul Butterfield was there in spirit.
