Shake ‘Em On Down: The Blues According to Fred McDowell
A documentary film by Joe York and Scott Baretta

This one-hour film tells the story of Fred McDowell, who was first recorded by Alan Lomax in 1959, mentored Bonnie Raitt, and served as the cornerstone of the unique and enduring North Mississippi-style of blues music.

Director Scott Baretta will be in attendance to hold a Q&A after the screening.
