A new look at an old genre. Shake Sister Shake takes us on a musical journey with female blues artists in a world dominated by men. Shake Sister Shake is a celebration of women, and a celebration of the blues. And yup, there’s a correlation! Chicago-born Australian director Lisa Eismen has a sharp eye and a sharper ear for some sharp music from women who range from the well-known (Marcia Ball) to the lesser-known (BB Queen)—with two things in common: their gender and their music. Also featuring illuminating interviews with Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.
