Charlie Musselwhite’s New Release

‘Mississippi Son’

Out Now

Mississippi-born, Memphis-raised, Grammy Award-winning blues legend Charlie Musselwhite returns to his Delta roots with his latest full-length album Mississippi Son (via Alligator Records), his first new solo studio release in seven years.

A renowned harmonica player, the new material sees him also play guitar on every one of the fourteen tracks, which includes eight, semi-acoustic, raw originals plus renditions of songs from Charley Patton, The Stanley Brothers, Yank Rachell and John Lee Hooker.

Having recently moved back to Mississippi from northern California, Musselwhite recorded the performances in Clarksdale, in the heart of the Delta (read about LTTL’s last visit to the Crossroads City). Musselwhite calls his blues, “secular spiritual music”.

“Blues tells the truth in a world that’s full of lies”

“Blues Gave Me A Ride”

Charlie Musselwhite’s life story is impressive: born in Mississippi, raised in Memphis and schooled on the South Side of Chicago. His first LP was released in 1967, he relocated to San Francisco in the late 1960’s and has released nearly forty albums – straight blues, jazz, gospel, Tex-Mex, Cuban and other world music forms. In 2020, Musselwhite joined up with his friend Elvin Bishop for the Grammy-nominated, Blues Music Award-winning 100 Years Of Blues.
