January Blues Festival – Mud Morganfield
+ support: THE CINELLI BROTHERS
Mud Morganfield is the eldest son of legendary Blues icon Muddy Waters.
Mud entertained the idea of becoming a professional musician after Muddy’s death in 1983. Blues fans were introduced to Mud at a tribute concert to his father in 2007, but his performance at the Chicago Blues Festival that same year brought him instant recognition.
“When I’m up on stage I always feel pops is there with me, and it means so much that I can get on stage and keep his music alive around the world,” Mud says. He has appeared on ‘Later…with Jools’ and was featured in a TV documentary hosted by Hugh Laurie, with whom he has also appeared on stage in Chicago.
Mud flies in from Chicago for this exclusive January Blues Festival appearance.
Support comes from emerging group The Cinelli Brothers.
