Grammy-nominated filmmaker John Anderson’s HORN FROM THE HEART: THE PAUL BUTTERFIELD STORY is the complex story of a man many call the greatest harmonica player of all time. A white teenager from Chicago’s South Side, Paul Butterfield learned the blues from the original black masters, like Muddy Waters, performing nightly in his own backyard. The interracial Paul Butterfield Blues Band added a rock edge to the Chicago blues, bringing an authenticity to its sound that struck a chord with the vast white rock audience and rejuvenated worldwide interest in the blues. The film features Butterfield’s music and words, along with first-hand accounts from his family, his band mates and those closest to him, with appearances by David Sanborn, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Paul Shaffer, Michael Bloomfield, Todd Rundgren and Bob Dylan. The Paul Butterfield Band was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.
Time: 104 minutes
