Mud Morganfield

Larry “Mud” Morganfield isn’t called “Muddy Waters Jr.” for nothing: he is the eldest son of the legendary Father of Chicago Blues. He looks and sounds incredibly similar, too. And just like his father, that same love and talent for the blues is deeply ingrained. Mud was drawn to music at an early age. His father gave him a drumkit when he was seven, though he later switched to the bass and started songwriting. Just like his younger brother, Big Bill Morganfield, Mud didn’t become a professional musician until after his father’s death in 1983. Blues fans were introduced to Mud at a tribute concert to Muddy Waters in 2007, but his performance at the Chicago Blues Festival that same year brought him instant recognition. Last year, he released his album Son Of The Seventh Son.
