I am thrilled to announce that German film maker M.A. Littler of Slowboat Films will present his new film The Folk Singer at The Deep Blues Festival this year. I think you'll agree that Mr.Littler's film is a perfect match for our lil' punkass music and film fest thang.

Synopsis: Troubled by religious demons, anger, doubt and the need to supply for his unborn child folk blues singer Jon embarks on a gruesome month long tour through Texas and Louisiana.
