On Friday, February 2nd, 2007
at 7PM & 9:30PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also
known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island
will present an evening with Delta Bluesman singer-songwriter Keb’ Mo’.
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb’ Mo’s music
is a living link to the seminal Delta blues that traveled
up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America-
informing all of its musical roots- before evolving into
a universally celebrated art form. Born Kevin Moore,
he adopted his better known stage name when he was a
young player who became inspired by the force of this
essential African-American legacy.
Mo’s music is
a purely post-modern expression of the artistic and cultural
journey that has transformed the blues, and his own point
of view, over time. His distinctive sound embraces multiple eras and genres, including pop, rock, folk, and jazz, in which he is well-versed. Three
time Grammy winner Keb Mo’s unvarnished
vocals are bell-like in clarity through frank delivery
and emotional constancy, and his acoustic and slide guitar
mastery ring just as true. With laconic storytellin’ and
gritty country blues tunes, from broadside ballads to
lilting odes to love, through mellow folk rags and fiery
laments, Mo’s seamless synthesis of roots idioms, pop ardor and lyrical dexterity is soulful and authentic.
Tickets for this performance are $45.00 ($34.00 for
IMAC Members). For tickets or further information
