Special guest from Chicago, Mudd Morganfield, eldest son of one of the most famous blues names of all time, Muddy Waters, headlines the list of participants at this year's 4th edition of the Cotton Blues Festival. The festival will be held on May 24 and 25 at the Youth Cultural Center. Tickets can be purchased through the MCC website.

The festival will be opened by the masterful guitarist Muhammad Ibrahimi on May 24, at 20 p.m. It is a difficult to define musical phenomenon, at least according to the existing musical norms, because there is a lot of domestic blues with elements of jazz, world, ethno.

On the same evening, "Troja Band" will perform, whose special guest at the evening will be Macedonian guitarist Igor Atanasoski, better known as Guru Hare.

The first night of the festival will culminate with the performance of the Danish trio "Trainman Blues", winners of several European blues awards and known for taking a contemporary approach with a soul spice to the performance of blues music.

Adi Imeri, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, will open the second night on May 25 at 20 p.m. He will perform a solo performance inspired by the American gospel song popularized by Blind Willie Johnson, who dedicated his life to playing gospel and blues music.

The festival will be closed by special guest from Chicago, Mad Morganfield, with an energetic Chicago blues sound, which will be a fusion of his original material with songs of his cult father Muddy Waters.

The band that will accompany him are local musicians: Nikola Petrovski (guitar), Sašo Gjorgjevski (harmonica), Oliver Josifovski (bass), Goran Poposki (drums) and Filip Dimishkovski (keyboards).

The Macedonian visual and musical artist Igor Stanoevski together with the artists Trajce Pavlov, Boro Arsovski and Dragan Milovanov formed an art colony as part of the "Cotton Blues Festival". During the concerts, there will also be artistic creations, followed by an exhibition of the works.

Also, one of the most famous masters of handmade acoustic and electric guitars, Yanni Paveza, will be part of the "Cotton Blues Festival 2023". A presentation of the "Paveza" guitars and a lecture on their making will be held on May 24, at 13:XNUMX p.m., in the Upper Foyer of the MCC.
