This Is Why We Still Sing The Blues - Documentary Synopsis
Here's an abridged version of the synopsis of the documentary from the This Is Why We Still Sing The Blues website:
"Many famous bluesmen died penniless. The companies that produced their music made millions. More are out there and this documentary intends to help.

The documentary is the winner of the 2010 FuelFilm: Memphis "Show Me The Money" Film Pitch Competition. Here's one more link to the website and movie trailer:
