5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful film about an ancient tradition! May 6, 2013
Nearly 10 years in the making, Tom Weber's Troubadour Blues takes us on a journey about journeys. The road for these talented singer-songwriters is not a glamorous plane-hopping trip with thousands of expectant fans at every stop. For these artists, it's a drive, usually in a truck or van from town to town, playing for sometimes 50, 100, maybe more but not too many more. And that's part of what makes it so much fun. The kind of music performed by these talented folks is amplified (and not just literally) by the small venues they frequent where it might be swallowed up if they were playing at your local arena. You may not recognize all the names featured but you'll probably become a fan after seeing this film as it provides an intimate glimpse of them, both onstage and off, playing their songs, talking about songcraft, the road and most of all giving you an idea of what it's like to sing the Troubadour Blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Glimpse into the world of performers January 14, 2013
Not everyone is a superstar in the music business, but the troubadours featured in Troubadour Blues represent an important segment of America's ongoing musical heritage, and an important part of America itself. Tom Weber's film is a passionate work that should be viewed by anyone interested in the lives of musical storytellers. Highly recommended.
