See and hear Henry play the beautiful ballad “I’ll Get By As Long as I Have You” with Marc Ribot and Chad Taylor (filmed by Hank Cherry and crew)

Now, isn’t this a shame?  We arranged for Hank Cherry to be able to film this concert, as well as several others, back in 2010 because he said he wanted to make a Henry Grimes documentary, and we really liked that idea.  But after we arranged for access for Mr. Cherry and crew to film several concerts and several interviews, he went on Kickstarter and raised $7,500 from Henry’s fans and friends to make the documentary, after which we never saw Hank Cherry again, even though we had another two dozen concerts and a list of interviews lined up for him to film, including a festival and a master class in Hank Cherry’s own home town.  And he won’t even let Henry put a few minutes of his film onto Henry’s own Web site (see above).  Worse still, now in 2013, we hear that Hank Cherry is back trying to raise more money from Henry’s fans and friends with another crowd-sourcing campaign.  Beware, dear people!  There are some shameless exploiters and opportunists out here.
