Abstract:

Join folk-rock musician Ani DiFranco in a four part film series filmed live along the Mississippi River, highlighting the richness and vitality of American music at the close of the 20th century. In this third segment from from La Center, Kentucky to Jackson, Mississippi, the music gets louder as the river flows South. Memphis forged the sounds of rockabilly and soul. In the Mississippi Delta, music is still deeply rooted in the soil. Secular music styles come back to the blues, and gospel is at its most heartfelt and powerful.
