Sidemen: Long Road to Glory (12A) Tuesday 2nd October
On the eve of Leek’s Blues and Americana festival featuring over 50 acts over 5 nights, we are privileged and excited to bring you the UK premiere of the amazing Sidemen: Long Road to Glory, an intimate look at the lives and legacies of three legendary bluesmen: piano player Pinetop Perkins, drummer Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith, and guitarist Hubert Sumlin, all Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf sidemen.
The film captures some of the last interviews and final live performances, before their deaths in 2011. The historic live shows are accompanied by personal insights from many of the blues and rock stars these legendary musicians inspired, including Joe Bonamassa, Gregg Allman, Bonnie Raitt. Including a short talk from Mike Gledhill.
