This is "Muddy Waters Month" at Delta Blues Museum

Celebrate the Legend

McKinley Morganfield, born April 4, 1913, earned the nickname "Muddy" for his habit of playing in mud puddles; "Waters" would be added later. Moving to Clarksdale, he grew up farming on Stovall Plantation. After seeing Son House play, he bought a guitar... and the rest is music history. See Muddy's full story at the "Explore & Learn: Follow Muddy" section of our website.

Our Gift Shop has many souvenirs of this blues legend's life and music. From exciting CDs to an insightful biography, from colorful t-shirts and caps to souvenir coffee mugs, we have special items to mark his anniversary.

Check out our "Muddy Merch" Section!
