Ivy Ford made her french debut, as a teacher and performe at the 2021 Blues Camp in southern France. This is a week long experience, where students of all ages come to emerge themselves in the music and culture of the blues.  A showcase concert at Tournon d'Agenais closes the festivities. Here the students perform numbers they learn and rehearse which is then followed by the French musicians/instructors performing and ending the whole night with some of Chicago's finest, including Ivy Ford.
