Willie Foster in Honeyboy


2002 NR

In this absorbing documentary, Mississippi Delta Blues musician David "Honeyboy" Edwards discusses his hardscrabble life and the artists he's played with -- including Big Joe Williams, Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Little Walter Jacobs and others. Born in 1915, Edwards hit the road in his youth, playing throughout the rural South. B.B. King, Willie Foster and Waymon Meeks make appearances to reminisce and perform with Edwards.
