Keb Mo and His Band set to do Reflection for Mahaiwe October 18 [Berkshire on Stage]
Over the past few years, Keb Mo has played hundreds of shows on several continents, as well as composed and recorded music for the TNT series “Memphis Beat.” This singular artist’s celebrated recordings and live performances bring together his diverse influences-pre-disco R&B, American folk and gospel, and rock, in addition to the blues-in a sound that is truly and uniquely his own.
A singer, guitarist and songwriter, Keb Mo is a three-time Grammy Award winner for the Best Contemporary Blues Album, and a key figure in the acclaimed 2003 PBS series “Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues.”
He’s been booked into the Mahaiwe in Great Barrington, MA and will perform selections from his new album, The Reflection. These songs are the product of an important period of personal and professional growth for the artist formerly known as Kevin Moore. In that time, he started a new family, moved from Los Angeles to Nashville, built a state-of-the-art home studio, and founded his own label, Yolabelle International, distributed by Ryko and the Warner Music Group.
NOTE: In addition to his concert at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington on Thursday (October 18), Keb Mo will also be leading his band into The Egg in Albany at 8pm on Saturday (October 20).
