"...Winning on the strength of its homespun charm....Colorful, lively and garrulous..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/02/1986
"...The documentary team shrewdly keeps a low profile, letting us enjoy Armstrong's rambles through Chicago's South Side and his trip back home to Tennessee..."

"Armstrong emerges as an extraordinary man navigating a mundane world....He worked steadily in an era that crossed musical genres freely, then wound up largely forgotten once that era passed." -- Grade: A-
A small, independent film made with loving care, about a fascinating, lovably down-to-earth, culturally significant subject that embodies and illustrates folkloric Americana, Howard Armstrong, Tennessee fiddler and mandolinist. Songs include: "State Street Rag," "My Four Reasons," "Diamond Dog Blues," and others.
