Escarpment Blues is a Canadian concert and documentary film starring singer-songwriter Sarah Harmer.[1] Directed by Andy Keen and produced by Keen, Harmer, Bryan Bean and Patrick Sambrook, it was released theatrically in 2006.

In June 2005, Harmer launched a tour, called I Love the Escarpment, across southern Ontario to promote Protecting Escarpment Rural Land (PERL), a conservation group she cofounded to battle a proposed quarry development on the Niagara Escarpment near her hometown of Burlington.[2] Harmer toured communities near the escarpment, both performing and speaking about the PERL campaign.[1] The film documents both her live performances and her activist work from the tour, and takes its name from "Escarpment Blues", a song from her 2005 album I'm a Mountain.

Poet Tanis Rideout also participated in the PERL tour and appears in the film.

Escarpment Blues won the award for Best Music DVD at the 2007 Juno Awards.[3]
