The Troubadour Blues Roadshow — an exciting blend of film, poetry, acoustic music and song-driven rock & roll — is coming to Tennessee in October for a three-night mini-tour. We’ll start out at the Pilot Light in Knoxville on Thursday, Oct. 10, travel on to the Family Wash in Nashville on Friday, Oct. 11, and wind up at Kudzu’s in Memphis on Saturday, Oct. 12.

The touring show features a 25-minute preview of Troubadour Blues, filmmaker Tom Weber’s insightful documentary about hard-traveling musicians, followed by live performances by three exciting artists: poet and songwriter RB Morris, cowgirl song-slinger Nancy Apple, and roots-rockers The Tim Lee Three. Surprise musical guests will be featured each night.

Here’s the story of “Duct Tape Messiah,” Kevin Triplett’s documentary about the late, great Blaze Foley. Tom Weber Films will be handling marketing and distribution for this great film while Kevin is employed in Saudi Arabia. Kevin and I have a lot in common: we made our documentaries over many years out of passion for our subjects, and we marketed them the old-fashioned way, by barnstorming, traveling from city to city showing our work in bars, coffeehouses, libraries and church basements..

By KEVIN TRIPLETT

I worked 12 years on my documentary about the obscure but legendary Texas songwriter Blaze Foley, who was affectionately called the “Duct Tape Messiah.”

12 years is a long time to work on anything and I gave up several times. It was my first film, so I had to learn how to make a film and how to tell a good story well. I made many mistakes, which is why I’m writing this story, as a warning to other first-time filmmakers: avoid what I did!

If you want to be an independent filmmaker in today’s rapidly changing environment, you face a very steep learning curve. Even experienced filmmakers are throwing up their hands in despair, and if I see another death-of-cinema article in a national magazine I think I’m going to scream.
