Gip is the story of Henry 'Gip' Gipson, a gravedigger by day and a hard drinking bluesman by night. In 1952 he started 'Gip's Place' - a ramshackle, thrown-together juke joint in his backyard in Bessemer, Alabama. Today, there are only a small handful of the original juke joints left and in fact, some argue that there are only four. But then Gip's Place, the last one in Alabama, was raided and closed.
