"Little Sammy Davis" is a musical documentary that looks into the life and music of Sammy Davis, a sweet charming 72 year old Mississippi Delta Blues harp player. This film captures a fading culture of "original growth" bluesmen, who are at the core of American music. Sam received his first harmonica from his father and started playing at the age of 8. While growing up, Sam heard the records of Tommy McClennan, Blind Boy Fuller, Peetie Wheatstraw, and one of his favorites, John Lee Williamson.
"Little Sammy Davis" won The Audience Recognition Award at the AFI/SLIVERDOCS Film Festival and was a Jury Selection at the London Film Festival and The Woodstock International Film Festival.
