Description

The Arkansas Wild Man is an intimate portrait of Sonny Burgess, an 87-year-old rock and roll pioneer who lives a quiet life of obscurity in his Arkansas hometown but continues to play weekly concerts despite the obstacles of age and poor health. As one of the last surviving original Sun Records recording artists, Sonny performed with some of the biggest names in American music, but he never quite became a star himself. Despite a lack of name recognition in the United States, he gained a dedicated and passionate audience all over Europe, and he plans to travel to England one final time to perform his classic rock and roll.

In Attendance: Nathan Willis, Director/Cinematographer/Editor
