When 81-year-old Leo Welch from the Mississippi backwoods skyrocketed to global gospel blues stardom after releasing his debut record in 2014, the music world was taken by surprise: «Where has this guy been the last 60 years? Why has nobody ever heard of him?». Documenting the most exciting times in the life of one of the last real bluesmen, Late Blossom Blues is a film of historic dimensions for all music-lovers, a moving account of a hard-working man, who, despite all the difficulties, never wavered from his passion and waited more than 70 years to finally live his dream.
