Over the last two years, Mud Morganfield, eldest son of the undisputed king of the Blues Muddy Waters, has been delivering charismatic Chicago blues of the highest order around the world. Audiences from Russia, Sweden, Australia, Denmark, Brazil, Argentina, Denmark Spain and Mexico have experienced the “Mud effect”.
This son and proud heir of the King of Chicago blues is blessed with a big and powerful voice that can manage to convey deep emotional resonance on the slow numbers and good old-fashioned testosterone laden strut on those classic shuffles.
He looks and sounds strikingly like his old man, so much so that one of his dad’s former sidemen said “It’s like watching a ghost in the flesh!”
Mud however also has his own very individual mojo working and is touring with the UK’s very own top blues talent – West Weston: harp, Ronni Buysack-Boysen: guitar, Ian Jennings: double bass and Mike Hellier: drums.
His most recent album “For Pops” was recorded as a tribute to his late father and he will be performing tracks from this and his earlier album “Son of the Seventh Son” (which won the Living Blues “album of the year” in 2013) as part of the concert.
Mud Morganfield plays the Isle of Arts Festival at the Ventnor Winter Gardens on Sunday 3rd May at 8pm.
Tickets are £17.50.
Book your tickets through the Isle of Arts Festival Website or in person from Seasons newsagent on Ventnor High Street.
