TajMo’: The Taj Mahal & Keb’ Mo’ Band sees Blues titans Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’ share the stage with an all-star band for an exciting night of music, performing songs from their long-anticipated collaborative album coming this Spring on Concord Records.
One of the most prominent figures in late 20th century blues, Taj Mahal has played an enormous role in revitalizing and preserving traditional acoustic blues. His broad musical approach also includes a multitude of folk music from around the world — reggae, jazz, gospel, R&B, zydeco, various West African styles, Latin, and even Hawaiian.
The two-time Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, film composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist was presented with the Lifetime Achievement for Performance Award in 2014 at the 13th Annual Americana Honors and Awards, which celebrated decades of recording and touring that have nearly singlehandedly reshaped the definition and scope of the blues via the infusion of exotic sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and South Pacific.

As a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, producer, actor, mentor and consistently excellent performer, Keb’ Mo’ is a true American icon. In 1994, with the self-titled release under his newly coined “Keb’ Mo’” moniker, he proved once and for all that he was a musical force to be reckoned with.
Album after album, 11 in total, garnered him 3 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 8 additional Grammy nominations including Country Song of the Year for “I Hope,” co-written with The Dixie Chicks, and 3 alone for his 2014 release, BLUESAmericana including Americana Album of the Year. Keb’ also has been awarded 11 Blues Foundation Awards and 6 BMI Awards.
