Mud Morganfield is more than just a tribute act

Live Review

Venue: Boisedale, Canary Wharf, London

Muddy Waters' boy performs his father's music with class, dignity and excitement.

At times it feels almost like a séance this evening. Someone has called on the spirit of Muddy Waters, and... can he have answered? No, but Mud Morganfield does have a good deal of Muddy’s presence and a great deal of his voice. There are moments when you really can shut your eyes and believe it’s his old man. Put him with a band that can reproduce the classic ensemble sound of 50s Chicago, and the illusion is complete. If you never saw Muddy Waters, this is absolutely the next best thing.
