In this follow up to THE BALLAD OF SHIRLEY COLLINS, Rob Curry and Tim Plester travel the back roads of the Southern United States, following the route of Alan Lomax’ iconic ‘Southern Journey’ song-collecting trip from 1959. Undertaken during the Trump era mid-term elections, their trip is both a document of a unique moment in history, and a testament to the enduring relevance and healing power of American roots music.

From blues to bluegrass, hollers and spirituals, the film showcases the diversity of music and culture emanating from the south, and moves beyond stereotypes to explore the complexity and diversity of the region.
