AN EVENING WITH LEO "BUD" WELCH THE LAST OF THE DELTA BLUES GUITARISTS SCHEDULE - Combo Tickets Available WEDNESDAY, JULY 12 - Late Blossom Blues Documentary, in-person Q&A with star Leo "Bud" Welch, Manager and Director FRIDAY, JULY 14 - Concert with Leo "Bud" Welch LEO "BUD" WELCH IN CONCERT FRIDAY, JULY 14 Join us for the concert at 7 p.m. Friday, July 14, at the Performing Arts Center Studio Theatre. The last of the Delta Blues guitarists, Leo "Bud" Welch was born in Mississippi in 1932, and picked up a guitar for the first time in 1945. By age 15, Leo was performing publicly and was even offered an audition by BB King, but couldn't afford the trip to Memphis. By day he earned his living carrying a chainsaw up and down the hills and hollows of North Mississippi, logging for 35 years. Playing his guitar for friends and family for over 65 years, he remained under the radar, undetected by Blues afficionados. Then on April 19, 2013, he was secretly recorded performing at the 50th birthday of his now-manager, and the video went viral. Leo "Bud" Welch has now taken the musical world by storm, releasing his debut album in 2014, just two months before his 82nd birthday, and his sophomore album in 2015, just two days after his 83rd birthday. Watch videos of Leo's performance. Concert goers will have a southern drink and dessert from Pure Bean included with their ticket. Gramma's Delicacies food truck will be on hand with a creole dish crafted just for this special multi-day event. Cash bar at the venue. All to accompany an intimate performance with the 84-year-old Bluesman "Bud" and a chance to experience living history. VIP EXPERIENCE VIP tables seating six lucky guests each will get a seat on stage right next to Leo "Bud" Welch, a true juke joint experience reminescent of days when soul-searching rhythms reigned supreme in the south. VIPs will also get an exclusive meet-and-greet with the Blues legend himself before the concert, along with signed memorabilia to take home and treasure. Gramma's Delicacies' creole dish, a bucket of beer, and a special southern treat from Pure Bean are all included in the ticket. There will be only 6 VIP tables available, so don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience with the last of the Delta Blues Guitarists. LATE BLOSSOM BLUES DOCUMENTARY WEDNESDAY, JULY 12 Join us for the documentary at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 12, at the Performing Arts Center Studio Theatre. When 81-year-old Leo "Bud" Welch from Missippi backwoods skyrocketed to global Blues & Gospel stardom after releasing his debut record in 2014, it took the music world by surprise: Where has this guy been the last 60 years? Why has nobody ever heard of him before? When he started playing 10-15 shows every month all over North American and even in Europe and Africa, more questions arose: How is this possible for a guy his age? Who makes all this happen? Answers are given in LATE BLOSSOM BLUES, a feature-length documentary about Leo "Bud" Welch and his very late rise to fame. It's the quintessential Blues story - a story about poverty and exploitation, about The Lord & The Devil, and of course a story about life that reminds us that it's never too late to live your dream.  LATE BLOSSOM BLUES follows Leo and his ex-soldier manager as they balance the tight rope of business and geriatrics, between jetlag and soundcheck. It also paints a heartwarming portrait of Leo's small hometown Bruce, Mississippi, where Leo's daily life is still untouched by his late global popularity. Documenting the exciting times in the life of one of the last real Bluesmen, LATE BLOSSOM BLUES is a film of historic dimension for music lovers - a moving account of a hardworking man, who, despite all adversaries, never wavered from his passion and waited more than 70 years to finally live his dream. LATE BLOSSOM BLUES is the first film of Vienna-based curator Wolfgang Pfoser-Almer and his newly formed company, Let's Make This Happen Films. Partly financed by crowdfunding and social media buzz, the film already has an impressive community of engaged followers from all over the world. Leo "Bud" Welch is now 84 years old. He will attend the documentary and answers questions in person, along with his manager and the documentary director, after the show. Watch the trailer. Documentary goers will have a southern drink and dessert from Pure Bean included with their ticket. Gramma's Delicacies food truck will be on hand with a creole dish crafted just for this special multi-day event. Cash bar at the venue.
