Troubadour Blues is a journey into the world of well-traveled singer-songwriters like Peter Case, Mary Gauthier, Chris Smither, Dave Alvin, Slaid Cleaves and many more.
Filmmaker Tom Weber spent nearly 10 years gathering material for this feature-length documentary which provides a revealing look at the heartbreaks and joys of these modern-day wandering minstrels.
The emotional documentary features live performances of 40 songs by the artists who wrote them, including Peter Case’s “Icewater” and “Entella Hotel,” Mary Gauthier’s “Drag Queens In Limousines” and “Wheel Inside The Wheel,” Dave Alvin’s “Ashgrove” and Smither’s breathtaking rendition of “No Love Today.”
“The artists filmed in “Troubadour Blues’’ surely have political views, but the majority of their songs are like short stories or phone calls, full of emotion and observation.” – Boston Globe
“It’s the tale of lifers, musicians who play because that’s what they do.” – USA Today
2011 / 95 minutes / English Language / A film by Tom Weber
