A DOCUMENTARY about Stourbridge country singer Pete Boddis, who has been on the Midlands music scene since the 1960s, is to be screened in the town this weekend.

Stourbridge-based film-maker Ryan Davis has directed the film called The Black Country Cowboy which is to be screened at Claptrap in the High Street on Sunday April 30, at 7.30pm.

The film looks at a life in music, the high and lows and how the love of his wife allowed singer-songwriter Pete to continue through the worst of times, Ryan said.

The award-winning film-maker, of Birmingham based independent production company Gambol Films, said: “It's an uplifting look at perseverance and the love of music.”

It was Ryan's first time in the director's chair, having written and produced a short film (3ft from The Other Side) and a feature film, Fixed which was nominated for three 2022 Midlands Movie Awards, with its star Nick Clarke winning a best actor award.

The film was also nominated for the 2022 Best Thriller at The National Film Awards.

Ryan said before he became a writer he was a musician, so Pete’s story really resonated with him and he now hopes to turn it into a feature film.

Entry to the screening at Claptrap is free and there’ll be a Q&A with Pete and Ryan.

Pete will also be performing afterwards.
