Blind Mississippi Morris

Request Free Quote

 Description
A native of Clarksdale, MS and blind since age 4, Blin Mississippi Morris is the embodiment of the Delta bluesman. Rated one of the ten best harmonica players in the world by Bluzharp Magazine, Morris has taken the Delta blues worldwide from his Memphis home.

As a duo, he and his guitarist are peerless — they know instinctively each other's every move. And when Morris fronts the Pocket Rockets, get ready for a classic R&B "throw-down" from some of Memphis' finest players.

When he's not traveling the world playing blues festivals, Morris is often found on stage at B.B. King's on Beale Street.
