Mojo Risin: Featuring Joseph “Mojo” Morganfield

July 12 @ 7:30 pm - 12:00 am

Diverse Arts is excited to have the opportunity to present a rare appearance by Joseph “ Mojo” Morganfield, performing at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard on historic E. 11th St. Direct from Chicago, the youngest son of the God Father of Modern Blues, Muddy Waters, “Mojo” has recently released his first Ep, “Mojo Risin,” produced by Grammy Winner Michael Freeman. Visiting town to play Austin for the first time ever, we intend for this to not be the last time Mojo is on our stage!  Also on the bill is LA Hopi Blues Band, on the road from Los Angeles, they add a very special Native twist to blues, funk, country and rock and roll to the show. Because of the special nature of this performance, Kenny Dorham’s will also announce local blues luminaries who will be our special guests and share the stage with Mojo.

 

It’s gonna be good, don’t miss it.  Friday July 12th. Gates at 7:30 pm. Bring a blanket and relax in the Backyard with us and enjoy a great night of traditional blues…about as deep in the tradition as one can get!
