December 1989, Ko de Korte and Tom Haarsma from The Netherlands, went to Mississippi searching for blues musicians playing the old rural blues. The aim was to record their music on cassette tapes, but they also had a small Super-VHS camera. The registrations took place in the homes of the musicians, sometimes in their bedroom. After visiting 18 musicians in 2 weeks they came back with a lot of audio tapes and 14 hours of video. November 2013, Ko de Korte and Dutch J den Hollander decided to edit a documentary of the footage. Seventeen musicians have died now, among them are Rule Burnside and T-model Ford.

Video-opnamen gemaakt door Ko de Korte en Tom Haarsma rond de jaarwisseling van 1989/1990, tijdens hun zoektocht door Mississippi naar bluesmuzikanten die nog de oude traditionele blues vertolkten.
Dat resulteerde in vele cassettebandjes met muziekopnamen en 14 uur videomateriaal op compact Super-VHS cassettes. Ongeveer 3 jaar later heb ik dat videomateriaal overgezet naar DV PAL en teruggebracht naar een gemonteerde versie van bijna 7 uur. In 2013 heb ik met Ko besloten er een montage van ruim 50 minuten van te maken.
Dat is de documentaire "Rural Blues" geworden.
