The Kennedy Center presents: A Tribute to Muddy Waters-
King Of The Blues

Honored in this special 1997 tribute, Muddy Waters was the King of the Blues: the man who took the deep blues of the Mississippi Delta to the city of Chicago, and pumped it up with an electric combo that created a blue print for the rock-and-roll band. With Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Gregg Allman, Peter Wolf, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Nick Gravenites, John Hiatt, Koko Taylor, and many others.

Featuring: Buddy Guy (She’s 19 Years Old), Keb Mo’ (I Can’t Be Satisfied), Peter Wolf (Rollin’ and Tumblin’), John Hiatt (The Same Old Thing), Nick Gravenites (Forty Days and Forty Nights), Gregg Allman (Trouble No More), Koko Taylor (Long Distance Call) and Robert Jr. Lockwood (Mean Red Spider)
