Horn from the Heart: The Paul Butterfield Story
Presented with: CHIRP Radio
DIRECTOR: John Anderson
COUNTRY: United States | 96 min.
Q & A with: Director John Anderson, Chicago blues harmonica legend Billy Boy Arnold, Pam and Jessie Butterfield (Paul's sister-in-law and niece)
The personal story of the life and times of a Chicago blues great, the late, legendary harmonica player and bandleader Paul Butterfield. Horn from the Heart captures the unbridled soul of a teenage bluesman who learned his craft at the feet of his mentor Muddy Waters, in joints where white kids from Hyde Park didn't go in the early '60s. While standing up to racial injustice, Paul Butterfield played a key role in bringing the blues to rock and roll. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.
Billy Boy Arnold, a Chicago blues icon and the brother of original Butterfield Blues Band bassist Jerome Arnold, will join director John Anderson and other special guests at the post-screening Q&A.
