Filmed in 1999, this programme, as well as being an in-depth lesson on delta blues, is a personal visit with a truly unique individual in the history of American music. Born in 1915, David 'Honeyboy' Edwards tells of his life and times and the fascinating, larger-than-life men and women he has met in the blues. Foremost among these is the immortal Robert Johnson. In a remarkable vignette, Honeyboy gives his first person account of the death of the great blues legend. Also included are detailed demonstrations and performances of solo country blues, slide guitar, boogie bass lines and lead guitar.
