We are incredibly proud to announce that the Taj Mahal Trio will take the stage at 8:15 pm Saturday, August 27th for the 18th annual NedFest! With a half-century-long career this 2 time Grammy Award winning (9 times nominated) legend is often cited as a major influence by superstars like Ben Harper and Greg Allman. He has worked with greats like Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Etta James, and the Rolling Stones. He's played on Fallon's Late NIght with The Roots and with Eric Clapton at the Lincoln Center. Known the world over for his blues guitar, he is actually a multi-instrumentalist who studied classical piano, trombone, and clarinet as a kid. He got interested in African music at a very young age and that influence has always added a different twist to his style. This unbelievable performer will blow you away!
