Limited Capacity seats available


The man some call “the greatest drummer of all time” is recognized almost as much for his signature double-shuffle beat — his capes, crowns, canes and cowbells are the stuff of legend— Sam Lay has played a key role in the evolution of the blues for almost 60 years. He was on drums when Bob Dylan went electric at Newport… He was in the studio and on the road with blues greats Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Walter and James Cotton... He was a founding member of the groundbreaking Paul Butterfield Blues Band. At 80 years old, Sam Lay is still an active part of the Chicago blues scene. This documentary tells Lay’s story through his own words, music and personal films, and features interviews with past bandmates Elvin Bishop, Charlie Musselwhite, James Cotton, and includes fierce admirers like Iggy Pop.
