MUD MORGANFIELD (MUDDY WATERS JR.)
The son of Muddy Waters (the 'King of Chicago Blues'), Mud Morganfield will be in Twickenham! Now a legend in his own right, Mud looks and sounds strikingly like his father, so much so one of Muddy Waters' former sidemen said "It's like watching a ghost in the flesh!" Mud, however, also has his own very individual mojo working and will be coming to The Eel Pie Club with the UK's very own top blues talent - West Weston: harp, Ronni Buysack-Boysen: guitar, Ian Jennings: double bass, Mike Hellier: drums and Eric Ranzoni: keys.
He is going to be at The Royal Albert Hall in October for Blues Fest but this ia an opportunity to see this great performer in an intimate Club environment. He played at the Eel Pie Club last summer and stunned us all!
