Born In Chicago chronicles a uniquely musical passing of the torch. It's the story of first generation blues performers who had made their way to Chicago from the Mississippi Delta and their unexpected followers — young white, middle class kids who followed the evocative music to smoky clubs deep in Chicago's ghettos. This new Chicago blues transcended the color lines of the 1960s as young, white Chicago musicians apprenticed themselves to legends such as Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. Featuring Dan Aykroyd, Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield, Charlie Musselwhite, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy and many more.
