Saturday Nights means Music in the Folklore Store.
Memphis/Mid-South area has been the proving ground for some of the
greatest names in the history of the Blues. No one has worked harder
at keeping this legacy alive than Blind Mississippi Morris and Brad Webb.
native Blind Mississippi Morris hails from a distinguished family of
Mississippi musicians. He was schooled on the harmonica at an early
age by cousins Robert and Mary Diggs of the legendary Mississippi Sheiks and his aunt Mary Tanner of the gospel group, The Harps of Melody. He's also a cousin of writer/performer/producer Willie Dixon, an integral part of Chicago's Chess Records during their heyday. Over the years, Morris has gained his own national and international recognition having been named by Bluzharp magazine as one of the ten best harmonica players in the world.
His partner, guitarist Brad Webb, didn't grow up in a blues family but the first time he heard Furry Lewis
playing guitar in a Memphis train station, he was hooked and began his
lifelong devotion to the blues. Growing up in Memphis he absorbed the
sounds of many of the great musicians from this region including Bukka White, Fred McDowell and Lee Baker of Moloch and Mud Boy and the Neutrons fame.
For over 20 years Morris and Brad have traveled many a road together taking their authentic Delta Blues
all over the United States and Europe. And there's no place better to
experience this dynamic duo up-close and personal than the intimate
