Honeyboy (2002)

Only available in Canada, United States

Legendary blues musician David “Honeyboy” Edwards was a last living embodiment of the delta blues and an American original. Born on a plantation in 1915, Honeyboy Edwards played the blues for some 80 years until his death in 2011. He played with such legends as Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Tommy Johnson, and Johnny Shines, and was with Robert Johnson the night he died.

He lived the life he sings about, hopping trains, gambling, rambling, singing on the street corners of Memphis and Chicago. With humor, humility, and joy, he tells his story in his own words and songs, along with interviews with those who knew him, such as B. B. King. Journey into the heart of the delta blues with Honeyboy.
