More exciting news emanating from the Broke & Hungry Compound

Broke & Hungry Records logoAlong with our buddy Roger Stolle of Cat Head Presents and principal film partners Damien Blaylock and Kari Jones, Broke & Hungry Records is pleased to debut the film preview for our upcoming blues documentary, “M for Mississippi: A Road Trip Through the Birthplace of the Blues.”

The film and accompanying soundtrack are slated for release this fall. Those interested in pre-ordering both the DVD and CD are invited to do so today! (You know what they say about a bird in the hand . . . ).

To learn more and to view the trailer, please visit the M for Mississippi Web site at http://www.mformississippi.com.

This timely road movie will explore the thriving underbelly of a dying American art form in the land where it began – Mississippi. Planned as a weeklong journey through the birthplace of the blues, M FOR MISSISSIPPI seeks to capture the proverbial "real deal" in its home where it is most comfortable and authentic -- the jukes, the front yards, the cotton fields. More than just a collection of concert performances, the film will collect the sounds, the images and the feel of both the performers and their native landscape – an environment essential to their livelihoods and inseparable from their art. Cultivating the fertile ground between such landmark theatrical travelogues as Buena Vista Social Club and Deep Blues, M FOR MISSISSIPPI aims to appeal to more than just the average blues fan. By showcasing such a fascinating foreign land so close to home, the filmmakers hope to inspire countless others to make their own road trips down Mississippi's blue highways.

The principal filming of M FOR MISSISSIPPI is slated to take place in Spring 2008 with a DVD and soundtrack planned for release in Fall 2008. Click the web link below for pre-order information and support this worthy project.

Broke & Hungry Records and Cat Head Presents are seeking marketing sponsors whose financial support will allow the project to be completed on time and in a manner that best reflects the amazing art and culture of Mississippi. Sponsors will receive significant credit in the film, its packaging and its marketing and media materials. For more information about marketing/sponsorship opportunities contact Jeff Konkel at jeff@brokeandhungryrecords.com or Roger Stolle at roger@cathead.biz.

Thanks as always for your continued support!
