Fans of the old man know that Muddy Waters, Godfather of the Blues, was truly a "Hoochie Coochie Man". And Muddy Waters' first-born son arrived in 1954 and was given his mother's maiden name. The boy was raised by his mother and often heard the nicknames "Muddy", "Mud Jr." and "Little Mud". Today, he says you can, "Just call me MUD!"
Mud Jr. kept in contact with his dad over the years and "pops" was always there when Little Mud needed something. As a youth and young man, Mud Jr. kept a low profile. He was always involved with music on a personal level, but only recently has he stepped forward to embrace his musical gifts - a big, charismatic voice and stage pressence that can definitely be compared to his legendary father!
Now, Mud Morganfield is stepping out to honor his dad, his dad's music, and to introduce his own flavor of blues. Watching Mud perform is like taking a trip to yesteryear to hear all of the old blues classics. Mud Morganfield sounds and looks like his old man in a way that no one else can. One of his dad's former sidemen said, "It's like watching a ghost in the flesh!"
Come and check out Mud Morganfield for yourself - you won't be disappointed. Look out blues fan... a special delivery from the Blues Music Gods has arrived!
