T-Model Ford - Studio 2A & KXCI Presents! 4/20

Tune in to The Home Stretch Wednesday at 5:30 for a Studio 2A performance from T-Model Ford and GravelRoad. They are also performing at Plush in a KXCI Presents! show, Tom Walbank opens at 9pm, April 20th.

At 91 years old, T-Model Ford is one of the last bluesmen of his generation. This is a rare chance to see a living legend of the Mississippi blues. T-Model's backing band GravelRoad join him for a night of authentic juke joint and trance blues.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist and Southern legend T-Model Ford plays a raw-edged, visceral style of blues from the Mississippi Delta. He began playing guitar late in life and did not tour much outside the Deep South until the 1990s. In recent years he's been well-received at South by Southwest, the Chicago Blues Festival, numerous other festivals, and on tour with Buddy Guy. T-Model, should resonate with fans of blues artists such as Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, John Lee Hooker, and Lightnin' Hopkins as well as with fans of later blues and blues-inspired acts like the Black Keys, Jon Spencer and Bob Log III.
