Mud Morganfield To Give Jools Holland The Blues

Blues star Mud Morganfield is set to appear on BBC Two's "Later with Jools Holland" airing in the UK on Tuesday November 20 and Friday 23, amidst his upcoming UK tour. His camp sent over these details:

The invitation to play on the long-running TV show came from the host, himself, acclaimed pianist Jools Holland, who caught Mud's performance at the London Blues Festival in June and offered him the slot after seeing Morganfield play. Holland also joined Mud and his band onstage at the Festival for a fantastic rendition of Mud's legendary father's signature song, "Got My Mojo Working."

"I am ever so grateful for the blessing," said Mud Morganfield about being on the TV show. "Here I find myself again in a great moment of my life. I am thrilled and overwhelmed, to say the least, to appear on the Jools Holland show. This is what an artist lives for: awards, write-ups in magazines, being on stage with great people and having fun in the blues. To add to all these great things, I represent the blues that my farther passed down to me. I thank Mr. Holland and everyone else who made this happen."

The BBC Two TV appearance is part of Mud Morganfield's upcoming UK shows this month that will feature him backed by some of England's top blues talent: West Weston - harp, Ronni Buysack-Boysen - guitar, Ian Jennings - double bass, Mike Hellier - drums and Eric Ranzoni - keyboards. His nine-date UK tour starts on the 22nd November at the Swindon Arts Centre and continues across England until the 1st December.
