8:00-9:30 Taj Mahal Trio
One of the greatest American roots musicians of all time, with more than 40 albums to his credit, Taj Mahal has played a vital role in preserving traditional blues and African-American roots music for four decades. A famously versatile musical chameleon, Taj has tapped into Hawaiian music, Caribbean rhythms, African forms, American folk, you name it always remaining true to rootsy traditions yet infusing all with a deep blues that is central to his sound and soul. Regardless of genre, his heart belongs to old-time country blues. Taj recorded his self-titled debut for Columbia Records in 1968, collaborating with Ry Cooder, and his first album remains a must-have classic. Several more excellent albums for the label followed through the early '70s, which along with steady touring established him as a popular, charismatic, laidback performer of great sophistication, wit, and intelligence. His insatiable thirst for varied styles and sounds has led to dozens of albums, hundreds of folk, blues, and world music festival appearances, and a broad audience. In the past five years, Taj has performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with the Roots; guested on new Clapton recordings; joined the Rolling Stones onstage; and performed at Bonnaroo with Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Chaka Khan, and more. His Complete Columbia Album Collection was released in 2013 on Columbia/Legacy. He was recently awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association.
