We all learn certain things from our parents. They sometimes influence our decisions and even our career choices. However, not many of us get to follow our passion with our mom or dad right by our sides. Madisen Ward and his mother Ruth are changing this fact. Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear are a mother and son folk and blues duo from Missouri. They only started performing in 2014 and released their first album “Skeleton Crew” in 2015. Their debut album was greeted with high praise and even reached the number 50 spot on the UK Album Chart. Since then they have appeared on a number of television programs including David Letterman and have performed at many festivals. Check out this pleasant duo aboard Joe Bonamassa’s 2018 blues cruise!
