When singer-songwriter Beau Jennings set out to make his latest album, he thought the subject would be his experiences of his home at the time, Brooklyn. As Beau worked on the album, he was drawn to a childhood hero of his, the legendary entertainer and political commentator Will Rogers. The pull of Rogers on Jennings’ creative spirit has resulted in a documentary that combines biography, concert documentary and travelogue into a unique rendering of Rogers’s legacy. In THE VERDIGRIS: IN SEARCH OF WILL ROGERS, Beau visits locations where major milestones of Rogers’ life occurred and performs original songs about those events. Along the way he explores the places and people who shaped or were influenced by the “Cherokee Kid” from Oklahoma who became an American icon.
