TAJMO: The Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ Band Date/Time(s): Thur, Aug 9, 2018 – 8pm (doors open at 7pm) Seating: Reserved Tickets: $45/$69/$85/$125 TAJMO marks a timely convergence of the talents of two unique American artists who’ve already built iconoclastic individual legacies that have extended and expanded blues traditions into adventurous new territory. The collaboration brings out the best in both artists, with the pair merging their distinctive voices, personalities and guitar styles to create vibrant, immediate music that’s firmly rooted in tradition yet ruled by a playful sense of adventure. The album features guest appearances by Sheila E., Joe Walsh, Lizz Wright and Bonnie Raitt, who lends her voice to a distinctive cover of John Mayer’s anthemic ‘Waiting on the World to Change.’ Taj Mahal first made his mark in the late 1960s with a series of visionary country-blues albums, and in the decades since has continued to pursue his free-spirited muse with a long series of eclectic recording projects touching upon a wide array of genres and cultures. Since arriving on the scene in 1990s, Keb’ Mo’ has built a powerful body of work that’s showcased his mastery of multiple blues as well as his sense of musical adventure, which has led him into all manner of projects. The two artists have known each other for decades, and Taj has been a longstanding touchstone for Keb’ ever since he saw him perform at a high-school student assembly. Taj even played a role in Keb’ getting his first record deal. But TajMo marks the first time that they’ve joined forces in the studio. For more, visit https://thevirginia.org/event/9209/.
