McKinley Morganfield...

a.k.a. Muddy Waters (b. April 04, 1913)

Muddy Waters was born in Rolling Fork, MS, then moved to Coahoma County where he grew up and worked on Stovall Farms, just outside Clarksdale. After being recorded for the Library of Congress in 1941 playing classic acoustic Delta blues, he moved to Chicago where he electrified his music with a band that included other blues legends (James Cotton, Otis Spain). His blues influenced a new generation of white musicians in the U.S. and the U.K. in the 1960s, sparking the blues "revival".

The Delta Blues Museum galleries display his original Stovall Farms cabin and the "Muddywood guitar,” made from scrap wood that was part of its roof by ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. Learn more from our Explore and Learn feature, a visual biography of his life and music, and take a virtual tour.

Our Gift Shop has several souvenirs to celebrate Muddy's birthday, from recordings to posters.
