Mud Morganfield (Eldest Son of Muddy Waters) Band
UK and Euro Dates Aug/Sept



First impressions are of humbling star quality. Mud sits on a stool in the middle of the stage and shows us the magic of the Chicago Blues, expertly performed, guiding the band all the way with ‘take your time fellas’, ‘Gimme a train, West! (On harmonica), ‘let’s play the Blues’ instilling the idea that Blues really is a state of mind.

The words are animated by his warm, meaningful facial expressions, the quick movements of hands that mean business and a relaxed composure, letting the music flow through him, channelling it almost, particularly when he plays Mannish Boy, arm hairs were on end. It really is in his blood and more so, perhaps, than his own Daddy.

The set, with interval, was a mix of his own songs from his forthcoming album Catfish Fishing“a great cd, with a great band”, and renditions of songs made popular and written by his father; Got My Mojo Working, Baby Please Don’t Go, Mannish Boy, Hoochie Coochie Man all of which warm the crowd, and Mud himself gets down, into a dancing frenzy by the end of the show. Brilliant!
