CIMMfest 2015 kicks off with a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

CIMMfest 2015 kickoff event hosted by Grammy-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker John Anderson includes discussion and commentary with Sam Lay and Corky Siegel. This special presentation starts at 8:30 PM.

CIMMfest 2015 kicks off with a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame send-off party for blues’ most celebrated drummer. Sam Lay was on drums when Bob Dylan went electric at Newport. He was in the studio and on the road with blues greats Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Walter and James Cotton. He was a founding member of the groundbreaking Paul Butterfield Blues Band. He is, at 79, still an active part of the Chicago Blues scene and the man some call “the greatest drummer of all time.” And on April 18, he’ll be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. The CIMMfest 2015 kickoff event hosted by Grammy-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker John Anderson includes discussion and commentary with Sam Lay and Corky Siegel, clips from Anderson’s new movie Sam Lay in Bluesland and a live music performance of Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials.

Lil Ed The Blues Imperials:

The Big Sound Of Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials

”Electrifying, raucous, pure Chicago blues….Lil’ Ed is a guitarist extraordinaire….slashing slide and flamboyant stage persona." –Chicago Tribune

"Rough and ready blues played with unmitigated intensity…Swirling, snarling, riveting slide….The Blues Imperials pound out riffs and rhythms like they’re overdosing on boogie juice.  Scorching and soulful, joyous and stomping." –Living Blues    More about Lil' Ed
