T-Model Ford is a terrific bluesman with a warm and engaging personality. Check out his performances whenever you get the chance, or pick up his recordings. But he also is notable as late bloomer supreme. Ford took up music at age 58, after his wife bought him a guitar as a gift. Just learning to play well at that age would be an accomplishment. Hell, just learning to play well at any age is an accomplishment. But Ford not only learned to play very well — he became a distinctive and successful entertainer, a solo act and bandleader who developed an international following in his 70s and is still touring and recording in his 80s.
So what are you waiting for? If you already play a little, you’ve even got a head start on T-Model Ford!
