It’s hard to envision a better night of music than a Keb’ Mo’ show, particularly if blues is your thing.
Or even if it isn’t.
The California-born blues singer, songwriter, guitarist and storyteller is a bluesman of the old school. Don’t think his music’s dated — he’s as improvisational a musician as you’ll find. But he’s cut from the blues troubadour mold, and is as engaging a storyteller as he is a talented guitarist.
You don’t have to take it from me: See for yourself. The Grammy-winning bluesman, born Kevin Moore, is scheduled to perform at the Tarrytown Music Hall on Friday, and it’s certainly a Listening Room-recommended show.
As we told you in our profile of him earlier this year, Keb’ Mo’s been around for quite a while and won plenty of well-earned acclaim. It’s not too man years ago that he was playing small venues — he played the Bayou Restaurant in Mount Vernon not too many years back.
Now he’s worked his way up, thanks to a remarkable stage show, a blend of traditional and modern blues, and an engaging stage personality that was, fortunately for him, rewarded with his Grammy Award honors.
Like I said, go see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
