Shout! Factory is involved with the crowdfunding for a new movie called Born In Chicago.

Born In Chicago is a soulful documentary film that chronicles a uniquely musical passing of the torch. It’s the story of first generation blues performers who had made their way to Chicago from the Mississippi Delta and their ardent and unexpected followers – young white, middle class kids who followed the evocative music to smoky clubs deep in Chicago’s ghettos. Passed down from musician to musician, the Chicago blues transcended the color lines of the 1960s as young, white Chicago musicians apprenticed themselves to legends such as Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.

As a musical tribute to the documentary, the “Born In Chicago” soundtrack will be released as a comprehensive CD and Vinyl release. This vibrant album will be filled with artists and tracks INFLUENCED by this film.

By pre-ordering any of the exclusive merch or experiences in the Store, you’ll receive a download of the Born In Chicago Blues Box Set (once released) as well as have access to special bonus content through the Updates.
