See blues titans Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ share the stage with an all-star band performing songs from their long-anticipated collaborative album released May 5 on Concord Records.
About Taj Mahal
In September 2014, Taj Mahal was honored with what he called “one of the most powerful and wonderful things that could ever happen in my life.” The two-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, film composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, was presented with the Lifetime Achievement for Performance Award at the 13th Annual Americana Honors & Awards. The honor celebrated decades of Mahal’s recording and touring during which he almost singlehandedly reshaped the definition and scope of the blues by infusing exotic sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and the South Pacific into his music.
About Keb’ Mo’
Things really took off for Keb’ Mo’ in 1994 with the self‐titled release under his newly coined “Keb’ Mo” moniker, and he proved that he was a musical force to be reckoned with. Album after album, 11 in total, garnered him three Grammy awards and a producer/engineer/artist Grammy certificate for his track on the 2001 “Country Album of the Year,” Hank Williams Tribute – Timeless. He has received eight additional Grammy nominations including “Country Song of the Year” for “I Hope,” co-written with The Dixie Chicks, and three alone for his 2014 release, BLUESAmericana, including “Best Americana Album.” Mo’ also has been awarded 11 Blues Foundation Awards and six BMI Awards, five of which are from his theme song for the hit television show, Mike and Molly. The list of artist collaborations comprises a veritable Who’s Who in the music industry and includes Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jackson Browne, Natalie Cole, Lyle Lovett, Melissa Manchester, Timothy B. Schmit, Marcus Miller, and many more. His songs have been recorded by B.B. King, Joe Cocker, Buddy Guy, Solomon Burke, Robert Palmer and the Zac Brown Band.
