82-Year Old Bluesman Leo Welch at Otha Turner’s Place, Senatobia, 7/27/13

Bands, entertainment, events, music, videos


I had never heard of Leo Welch before yesterday, but when the elderly man got on stage, he announced that he had been born in 1932, which he said was a “panic year.” Little Joe Ayers told me that Welch is from Ruth, Mississippi, which he said is out toward Water Valley. I was amazed at Welch’s fine strong voice and competent guitar technique, and even more amazed that nobody has recorded him yet. Someone should certainly do so soon.
