Seasick Steve: Bringing It All Back Home

Documentary which joins ex-hobo and festival favourite bluesman Seasick Steve on a trip back to the juke joints, roadside diners and freight-train yards of America's Deep South.

Documentary which joins former hobo and festival favourite bluesman Seasick Steve on a trip back to his old stomping grounds in America's Deep South. Filmed in Mississippi and Tennessee, the programme follows the musician into his natural habitat of run-down juke joints, roadside diners and freight-train yards, as he reflects on his past life and recent rise to fame.

In addition to Steve's raw, stomping tunes, the soundtrack features Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson, RL Burnside and BB King.
