Download – T-Model Ford

January 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

T-Model Ford has a new release for 2011, called 'Taledragger'. Backed by his regular touring band GravelRoad, the tracks were recorded during a 14 show US tour last year.

Despite suffering health setbacks, at 90 years of age (or thereabouts!) he's still cranking out some ferocious sounds. He was a wildman in his early years - when asked how many times he'd been to jail, he replied "I don't know. How many? Every Saturday night there for awhile." His fusion of Chicago and Southern juke joint blues was put down for posterity late in life over several releases for Fat Possum, and now we have some new sounds to enjoy. Courtesy of the great man himself and Alive Records, here's a free taster from the brand new album to whet your appetite.

2011 dates have not been announced - let's hope Europe is on the schedule. In the mean time please check out GravelRoad's very entertaining tour blog.
