Museum Mourns Loss of Delta Musician
We are sad to report that David Paul Burchfield died December 26, 2009 following a car accident near Leland, MS. Services will be at 11 a.m. today at the Interstate Baptist Church, Shaw.

David was the leader of the band "The Electric Mudd" and he played professionally throughout the region. He gave guitar lessons to aspiring musicians. David taught classes at the B.B. King Museum and was a popular performer at museum events and programs.

Burchfield was born on July 22, 1977, in Cleveland, MS to James William "Billy" Burchfield and Alma Marlene Bowen Burchfield. He married Nicole "Nikki" Roberson on July 12, 2003 and they have a two year old daughter, Piper Elizabeth.

After graduating from Mississippi Delta Community College with an Associate of Arts Degree in Field Technology, he returned to MDCC to pursue a music degree. David will be missed by his fans, his students, his friends and his family.
