Gospel Blues Phenom Leo Bud Welch Leads An Old Fashioned Blues Revival On His New Concert CD/DVD Live At The Iridium

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) He's 85 years young and just getting started! Mississippi bluesman Leo Bud Welch has been playing and preaching real deal gospel blues music since he first picked up a guitar in 1945, but he remained on the outskirts of the profession music industry known only to friends, family, and a handful of elder blues statesmen. That is, until Welch signed his very first recording contract at the ripe old age of 81! It's a remarkable story that is now the subject of a full-length documentary film called Late Blossom Blues currently screening at film festivals around the world.

Since the release of his debut album Saboulga Voices in 2014 and the follow-up I Don't Prefer No Blues in 2015, Welch has completely taken the blues world by storm, and now he offers his very first live concert album recorded at NY's prestigious club The Iridium! Live At The Iridium takes audiences on a journey through 6+ decades of blues music as Welch performs a mix of traditional songs, standards, and Welch's own compositions highlighted by "Praise His Name," "Got My Mojo Working," "Don't Let The Devil Ride," "Good Morning, Little School Girl" and more! The DVD portion was directed by veteran documentary filmmaker Wes Orshoski, creator of feature length films on UK punk legends The Damned and the late great Lemmy of Motörhead, and includes bonus interviews and a video biography of Welch.
Look for Live At The Iridium in a special CD/DVD jewel case package starting March 31!
