Music lovers and film lovers mingled last week in Austin, Texas, for the music and film programs staged at South by Southwest's 30th annual gathering. There were quite a few films that were about music and musicians, one of which focuses on the blues players still working in southern towns and rural areas where the distinctive American musical genre started more than 100 years ago. VOA's Greg Flakus has more about the film "I Am the Blues" in this report from Austin.
