Born in 1932 in rural segregated Mississippi, blues and gospel singer Leo “Bud” Welch was a poor man all his life, working hard in the cotton fields and the woods. But 2013, after decades of missed opportunities and gigs in local juke joints and churches, a Gulf War veteran management rookie teams up with him to take the blues world by storm. 

Documenting the most 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 hard-working man, who, despite countless adversities, never wavered from his passion and waited more than 70 years to live his dream.
