Nevis Blues Festival is now in its third year and an important Blues event on the world music festival calendar. This is the full length documentary of two childhood friends who decide to put a Blues festival for the very first time on the beach of a remote Caribbean island of Nevis.
This is a place where Blues music is unknown, a remote island of natural beauty where very little facilities exist for a music festival but full of locals who are willing to help the two organizers make this unique event possible. The film is the story of the struggle and gamble of trying to put on this event and its final outcome, along with some great performances from Ian Siegal, Zac Harmon, Denise Gordon and local talents; Kore with King Meeko, Odisi, Asher Otto, Shakal & Friends.
It gives a profile of ordinary life on this remote island and the natural beauty of the place, including a unique look at a local project where music is used to help inmates at a prison to change their lives. Film makers were given unlimited access to the prison and inmates who finally appear as one of the local guest bands, Impression, at the festival.
