    Leo Welch,

    Guitarist & Vocalist

    Leo “Bud” Welch, Sr. was born in Sabougla, Mississippi in 1932. Welch picked up a guitar for the first time in 1945 and played his guitar for close family and friends for over 65 years. Undetected by the vast majority of blues aficionados, he was secretly recorded performing in 2013 and has since taken the musical world by storm. Welch’s debut album “Sabougla Voices” was released in 2014, just two months before his 82nd birthday, and his sophomore album “I Don’t Prefer No Blues” was released in 2015, just two days after his 83rd birthday.
