Jailhouse Blues

Already dubbed the goddess of Canadian blues, Rita Chiarelli solidified her reputation within the genre by participating in the award-winning documentary Music From the Big House. In it, this famed artist steps behind the walls of Angola Prison (AKA the Louisiana State Penitentiary, regarded as one of the most violent prisons in the country) to examine the kind of music that comes out of the minds of men locked up for life. The result is a gripping film that demonstrates the power of music to unite people.
