    Founded by Rod Kennedy, the Kerrville Folk Festival has run annually since 1972. It is the longest continuously running music festival of its kind in North America. For eighteen straight days and nights each May and June, over thirty thousand guests come from all over the world to experience the magic of what the folks there simply call “Kerrville.” The festival is known internationally as a mecca for singer-songwriters of varying musical styles. It’s a place where those just developing their skills have the opportunity to play their music alongside master craftsmen. Over 1,500 outstanding singer-songwriters have been presented on the festival’s stages since the beginning. More than just a “folk music” festival, Kerrville offers music of many styles, including traditional folk, bluegrass, acoustic rock, blues, country, jazz, and Americana. The common thread is songwriting. The focus of the festival is to promote emerging artists while giving the audience exposure to both new and recognized, seasoned talent. Major-label artists such as Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Michelle Shocked, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Robert Earl Keen, Lucinda Williams, and Nancy Griffith played Kerrville early in their careers. Through the years, the Kerrville stage has seen other nationally known artists like Peter Paul & Mary, Judy Collins, Janis Ian, and Arlo Guthrie, while others such as singer/songwriter/actor Ronny Cox play on the stages any given year. Producer Joe Bevilacqua and his wife, Lorie Kellogg, camped out at the festival for five days to create this hour-long collage.

    According to Eric Clapton, John Mayer, and the late Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy is the greatest blues guitarist of all time. An enormous influence on these musicians as well as on Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck, he is the living embodiment of Chicago blues. Guy’s epic story stands at the absolute nexus of modern blues. He came to Chicago from rural Louisiana in the fifties—the very moment when urban blues were electrifying our culture. He was a regular session player at Chess Records. Willie Dixon was his mentor. He was a sideman in the bands of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. He and Junior Wells formed a band of their own. In the sixties, he became a recording star in his own right. When I Left Home tells Guy’s picaresque story in his own words, those of a storyteller who remembers everything, including blues masters in their prime and the exploding, evolving culture of music that happened all around him.
