After a successful tour with the Robert Johnson Centennial Concerts, BLUES AT THE CROSSROADS returns to celebrate the two legends, MUDDY WATERS and HOWLIN’ WOLF. Both musicians vie for the honor of the “father of modern Chicago Blues” and both are considered the key bluesmen inspiring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, John Mayall, Eric Clapton and others who brought about the 1960’s British blues explosion. Though friends, Muddy & The Wolf were rivals for the top slot, and this spurred on both to top the other and create classics of the genre, including “Spoonful,” “Mannish Boy,” “Rolling Stone,” and “Smokestack Lightning.” THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS join Blues at The Crossroads 2 as the core band backing greats JAMES COTTON, BOB MARGOLIN, TINSLEY ELLIS, JODY WILLIAMS, and KIM WILSON.
