Special first glance at a brand-new documentary celebrating women in blues music. Directed by Australian filmmaker Lisa Eismen. In addition to musicians filmed in Clarksdale — including Lala Craig and Heather Crosse — the film includes such iconic modern blues women as Big Time Sarah, Shirley King, Joanna Conner, Liz Mandeville, Beverly “Guitar” Watkins, Ruthie Foster and others who play original music and tell their stories — illustrating the importance women have and have had in the ongoing history of The Blues. A work-in-progress, this will be a very special preview event. (www.womeninbluesfilm.com)
