What better way to end our 10th Anniversary season than to celebrate the life of probably the greatest and most influential blues man of all time. Tonight, Mud Morganfield together with his star studded 5 piece band will commemorate the 100th birthday of his Dad (or "Pops" as he prefers to call him), Muddy Waters.. If you love Muddy’s blues you’re going to love Mud’s. Playing charismatic Chicago blues, his big, powerful voice conveys deep emotional resonance on the slow numbers and good old fashioned testosterone-laden strut on those classic shuffles.

Enjoy acoustic slide guitar and relaxed singing from Roger, along with some intricate guitar playing from Gary, well known UK jazz man, who likes to play the blues. You’ll be listening to original songs by Roger and traditional blues numbers by singers like Sleepy John Estes plus New Orleans inspired second line rhythms in gospel songs like Jesus on the Mainline, with a few JJ Cale songs.
