Sideman (n) — a supporting musician in a band or group
Sometime earlier this year I saw a Facebook post from my friend Ross Woods that really grabbed my attention.
It was an advertisement for a new film, Sidemen – Long Road to Glory.
I did a little research and found that ‘Sidemen’ was a film about 3 bluesmen who played ‘in the shadows’ of the big name band leaders Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.
I was intrigued.
Who were these men?
