ANGELS ON THE BACKROADS - GOING TO CHICAGO
From 1998 through 2001, two brothers, Eddie and Frank Thomas, traveled the backroads along Highway 61, Memphis to New Orleans, with a guitar and handheld recorder. They recorded 65 blues and jazz classics and released a 4 CD box set called Angels on the Backroads.
After the box set, the brothers returned to their recording locations, shot video and built a multimedia stage show that they took to fifty Mississippi high schools and three tours to the United Kingdom. London to Liverpool, Tunica to Tallahatchie, they videotaped it all.
Going to Chicago is an hour and fifteen minutes of selected performances from the Thomas brothers UK and Mississippi school tours combined with on-location footage from their multimedia stage show. Prepare to pat your feet and wipe a bit of Delta dust on your shoes.
