Ironing Board Sam’s Return

A short documentary by filmmaker, Tom Ciaburri about the past and present life of bluesman, Ironing Board Sam. Hailing from South Carolina, Ironing Board Sam, real name Samuel Moore, started his music career in the 1950’s and at one point had a backing band that featuredĀ a young guitarist named, Jimi Hendrix. The piano player went through many low points in his career and by the 1990’s was widely considered dead, until an old fan pulled him back into the spotlight and got him recording again. His story is inspiring for any one chasing a dream and his music is unstoppable and uncompromising. This documentary was made in the South, with support from the Southern Documentary Fund.
