World Blues featuring Taj Mahal, Vusi Mahlasela, and Fredericks Brown
Copeland Hall
Saturday, November 9, 8:00 PM $44 - $36
“World Blues” is a celebration of American blues music’s global influence, as seen from three very diverse points of view and three international points of origin. Anchored by iconic folk-blues legend Taj Mahal, the evening will also feature the soulful South African blues of guitarist/vocalist Vusi Mahlasela and the more modern rock and roll perspective of Fredericks Brown, a band featuring Taj’s daughter, Deva Mahal, who hails from New Zealand. Over his five-decade career, the Grammy Award® winning Taj Mahal has evolved into a master of global styles, from Mississippi Delta blues to Hawaiian stylings to African rhythms. In addition to headlining the program, he is also the binding thread throughout this amazing evening of music. Fresh from their sessions together on Vusi’s latest album, Taj and Vusi explore the intersection of African and American musical forms; and with Fredericks Brown, it’s clear that Taj has influenced yet another generation, taking blues along to new and exciting places.
Swear and Shake Featuring special guest: The Honey Badgers
live @ the baby grand
Friday, November 15, 8:00PM $18
New York-based band Swear & Shake's loyal fan base and earnest talent have driven them on tours across the US and into the focal point of fawning critics. The band's star seems to be continually on the rise, and released their fully-Kickstarter-funded LP, Maple Ridge in the summer of 2012, only a year after their formation. The first single from these recordings has already seen the light of day, as Paste Magazine premiered fan favorite “Brother” in May of 2013. The reviews speak for themselves: Time Out New York says Swear and Shake is the “Postcard-perfect indie folk with an undercurrent of sly humor” and New York Times articulates the group in a few words: "Folksy, foot-stomping rock." Newsday praised the band, comparing them to indie darlings Mumford & Sons and Bon Iver. Despite the band's critical acclaim, attending a Swear & Shake show feels like a cozy, crowded room of old friends where a guitar is picked up as the last bottle is poured. Swear and Shake most recently has shared the stage as direct support for The Lumineers, Delta Rae, G Love & Special Sauce and ZZ Ward.
