83-year-old Mississippi blues elder Leo “Bud” Welch is one of the last of his generation of no-nonsense, rugged electric bluesman. Born in Sabougla, Mississippi in 1932, Bud picked up a guitar for the first time in 1945. By 1947 at age 15, Bud could play well enough to perform publically and garnered the blessing of many elder guitar players. Bud played the blues continuously until 1975 and converted to playing mostly gospel with the Sabougla Voices, a group that included his sister and a sister-in-law.
