The hot, dusty Mississippi Delta and
Memphis, TN, known alternatively as
"the Eden of the Blues" and "the Home
of the Blues", are prolific and legendary
producers of unique and diverse Blues'
greats like Robert Johnson, Elmore
James, Jr. Kimrough and BB King.
Drawing continously from that tradition
comes Blind Mississippi Morris.
Morris comes from a talented lineage.
His cousins, Robert and Mary Diggs, led
the famed Memphis Sheiks, and his
Aunt Mary Tanner played with the
"Harps of Melody". Morris is also a
cousin of the late, great Willie Dixon.
Blind since age 4, Morris is the very
embodiment of the Delta Bluesman. He
has been called 'a new disciple of the
Delta' and the 'Real Deal on Beale' and,
he was rated one of the 10 best
harmonica players in the world by
