Back by popular demand! W. C. Handy is a larger than life figure in
American music history. For more than 100 years he has been revered
internationally as The Father of the Blues, but his story has never been told
in documentary form – until now. Mr. Handy’s Blues is an against all odds
heart wrenching tale of family conflict, racial tensions and redemption.
Born the son of a preacher in post Civil War Alabama, Handy rose to fame
as one of the most beloved and prolific composers of the 20th Century.
Joanne Fish, producer/director and owner of Labor of Love Productions will
show an 80 minute film on Mr. Handy and talk about his struggles and
triumphs to become a world renowned composer.
