Two of America’s biggest names are among a trio of world-class blues artistes that will be performing at Birmingham’s Jam House this autumn.

Texan electric guitarist Sherman Robertson will be bringing his blend of blues, R&B, jazz and rock to the popular St Paul’s Square live music and dining venue on Wednesday, October 13.

Robertson and his band will be followed on Wednesday, November 10 by Mud Morganfield, son of the legendary Muddy Waters, who will be reliving his father’s great Chicago blues sound.

They will be preceded on Wednesday, October 5 by singer songwriter and guitarist Ian Parker, who will presenting his back catalogue and newest material in his acoustic Up Close and Intimate show.

With a huge US-following, Sherman Robertson‘s many star turns have included being the guitarist of choice on Paul Simon’s platinum-selling Graceland album.

With a gospel-like tone that makes him sound like a cross between BB King and Robert Cray, Blues Revue has said he provides “some of the best Texas soul-blues anyone could hope for”.

Mud Morganfield, who looks like Muddy Waters, promises to pack the Jam House dance floor with his hot energetic shuffles and slow emotional numbers.

Supported by his band The Dirty Aces, he will be playing many of his father’s Chicago blues classics like ‘Hoochie Coochie Man’ and ‘Mannish Boy’ as well as his own original material.

The showman, who wowed audiences at the Lucerne Blues Festival last year, will also be arriving on the back of a new album, Fall Waters Fall, released on the pops daisy indie label.

Birmingham-born Ian Parker’s characteristic guitar style and soulful vocals have established him throughout Europe and America as a leading roots songwriter and performer.

Tickets for the evenings with Sherman Robertson and Mud Morganfield can be purchased either online at http://www.thejamhouse.com or at the door for just £5. Admission to the Ian Parker evening is free on the door.

John Bunce, Brand Manager for the Jam House, said: “Attracting home-grown and international stars of the calibre and charisma of Sherman Robertson, Mud Morganfield and Ian Parker has put the Jam House firmly on the map as the best place to go for world-class blues music.”
