Adding to our already impressive lineup we have a phenomenal double bill showcasing the very best of Blues from Chicago featuring Mud Morganfield Band and John Primer Band.

Echoing the same sound that made his father a Blues legend, Mud Morganfield salutes Muddy Waters heritage bringing a fresh edge to song over 50 years old. A multi-award-winning artist, Mud’s singing is firmly in the traditions of Chicago Blues and his most recent album ‘They Call Me Mud’ was released in 2018 and has received great reviews.

Joining Mud on the bill is the John Primer Band. John was the former guitarist and bandleader for the likes of Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Magic Slim and has played and recorded with the likes of Junior Wells, Eddie Vedder and the Rolling Stones. Since venturing out on his own John has released over a dozen albums and 2 of his projects have been nominated for Grammy Awards.
