It's never too late to start a recording career. Just ask 83-year-old Leo "Bud" Welch. His first record came out in 2013, decades after he first picked up a guitar in 1945. For blues fans, it's been worth the wait. This is real blues straight from rural Mississippi to the mountains. Explore his story with this stunning video and be sure to catch one of his sets at this year's festival.
