Born in St. Paul on the banks of the Mississippi River and raised on Tybee Island, Georgia, Mudcat began engaging audiences while traveling and busking on the sidewalks and at fairs throughout the US. Mudcat has apprenticed under many American musical pioneers, including Frank Edwards, Cootie Stark, Cora Mae Bryant, Neal Pattman, Dickey Betts, and Taj Mahal.
"The blues is a universal feeling that transcends languages, social status and the constraints of musical genre. Danny "Mudcat" Dudeck knows that feeling intimately. He travels the globe spreading his version of the blues gospel and regularly works with a number of international blues-preservation organizations. Whether performing solo, leading a smokin' band or a tight, one-off jam session with a founding father or a group of novices, his soulful and emotive delivery evokes images of the hard times that fed the early blues pioneers. And Mudcat's Bayou-baked, chicken-party revues can make even the most jaded music fan happy to be blue." - Creative Loafing Atlanta
