An Evening with Keb’ Mo’ Solo
It all took off for Keb’ Mo’ in 1994 with the self-titled release under his newly coined Keb’ Mo’ moniker, and over the years, he has proven that he is a musical force that defies typical genre labels. Album after album, 11 in total, garnered him four GRAMMY® Awards and a producer/engineer/artist GRAMMY® Certificate for his track on the 2001 Country Album of the Year, Hank Williams Tribute – Timeless. He has received 12 GRAMMY® nominations, in total, including Country Song of the Year for I Hope, co-written with The Dixie Chicks and Americana Album of the Year for his 2014 self-produced release, BLUES Americana. The Capitol Theatre presents an evening with Keb’ Mo’ Solo on Wednesday, June 13 at 7 pm.
Artists who have recorded Keb’s songs include B.B. King, Buddy Guy, the Dixie Chicks, Joe Cocker, Robert Palmer, Tom Jones, Melissa Manchester, Solomon Burke and the Zac Brown Band to name a few. The list of artist collaborations comprises a who’s who in the music industry and includes Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Jackson Browne, Natalie Cole, Lyle Lovett, India Arie, James Cotton, Bobby Rush, Timothy B. Schmit, Marcus Miller and more.
Keb’ is a celebrity mentor with the Kennedy Center’s Turnaround Arts program, which focuses on elementary and middle schools throughout the U.S. This highly successful program began under the guidance of Michelle Obama and the President’s Committee for the Arts and Humanities. Each artist adopts an underperforming school and becomes a mentor, working with teachers, students, parents and the community to help build a successful arts education program.
Keb Mo was honored to win a 2018 GRAMMY® Award for his collaboration with Taj Mahal for Best Contemporary Blues Album TajMo.
