Sweet Old Song (#1506)
"Sweet Old Song" celebrates the romance between two African-American artists: a 92-year-old fiddler from rural Tennessee and a 61-year-old visual artist from Boston. Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong has been performing music for more than 80 years and, since the early 1980s, has been collaborating on art and music projects with Barbara Ward, a fabric artist, percussionist and former dancer. The film charts a journey of celebration and sadness as they take on life's challenges with humor, grace and feisty stubbornness. [56 minutes]
