TUES AUG 16 at 8:45 PM RIDM en plein air : I AM THE BLUES à la Place de la Paix 1182 Boul St-Laurent, Montreal Qc https://www.facebook.com/events/1611578852465716/ 
Film by Daniel Cross (Quebec 2015 106 min) in the original English, with French subtitles. Director in attendance! FREE! 
I AM THE BLUES takes the audience on a musical journey through the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou, the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta and Moonshine soaked BBQs in the North Mississippi Hill Country. Visiting the last original blues devils, many in their 80's, still living in the deep south, working without management and touring the Chitlin' Circuit. Let Bobby Rush, Barbara Lynn, Henry Gray, Carol Fran, Lazy Lester, Bilbo Walker, RL Boyce, Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes, Lil Buck Sinegal, LC Ulmer and their friends awaken the blues in all of us.Trailer: https://vimeo.com/145293516 The Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) is working with several other organizations to present a selection of top-notch documentaries in Montreal’s parks and several unusual venues. A great way to enjoy both the summer and the best of documentary film! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
The Montreal Blues Society will be holding a Quebec to Memphis contest again this fall to determine which acts will represent Quebec in the Solo/Duo and Band categories in Memphis. The 33rd International Blues Challenge (IBC 2017) will be held January 31- February 4, 2017 in the Beale Street Historic District. Blues acts sponsored by blues societies from around the world will vie for top spot at the largest gathering of blues musicians in the world. This will be the 4th edition of Quebec to Memphis hosted by the Montreal Blues Society. Quebec acts have placed favourably in Memphis in the past, with semi-final and finalist appearances by Michael Jerome Browne and Dawn & Paul. This past January, the Montreal Blues Society was represented by the Paul DesLauriers Band, who made it all the way to the finals, finishing 2nd worldwide, out of 119 competing bands. Here is what you need to know about the Quebec to Memphis competition before you make it to Memphis:
