The Essential Taj Mahal Part II

3:00pm - 5:00pm

“What inspires me most about my career is that I’ve been able to make a living playing the music that I always loved and wanted to play since the early 50s,” Taj says. Quantifying Taj Mahal's significance is impossible, but people try anyway. A 2017 Grammy win for TajMo, his collaboration with Keb’ Mo’, brought his Grammy tally to three wins and 14 nominations, and underscored his undiminished relevance more than 50 years after his solo debut. Blues Hall of Fame membership, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association, and other honours punctuate his résumé. He will be headlining both the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and Vancouver Island Musicfest in BC this month.
