Keb’ Mo’ Returns to the Gaillard Center This Fall

Published

on

Keb’ Mo’ will return to the Gaillard Center with his band on November 16th. Tickets are on sale now.

The musician’s impressive career includes 14 albums, 5 Grammy awards (with 12 nominations), 14 Blues Foundation Awards, and 6 BMI Awards.

His guitar playing has garnered him two invites to Eric Clapton’s acclaimed Crossroads Festival and has inspired leading instrument makers, Gibson Brands, to issue the Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster and Bluesmaster Royale acoustic guitars and Martin Guitars to issue the HD-28KM Keb’ Mo’ Limited Edition Signature model.

He has also been featured in TV and film, playing Robert Johnson in the 1998 documentary Can’t You Hear The Wind Howl, appeared three times on the television series, Touched By An Angel, and was the ghostly bluesman “Possum” in John Sayles’ 2007 movie, Honeydripper.

Keb’ created “Martha’s Theme” for the TV show Martha Stewart Living and wrote and performed the theme song for the hit sitcom, Mike & Molly, created by Chuck Lorre. Keb’ has also played his iconic version of “America The Beautiful” in the series finale of Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing, as well as at the actual White House for President Obama.

Twenty-five years after the release of his debut album under the moniker Keb’ Mo’, the widely admired artist released his most recent album, Oklahoma, winning him a 2020 GRAMMY Award for Best Americana Album. Featuring cameos from Taj Mahal, Rosanne Cash, Robert Randolph, Jaci Velasquez and Keb’ Mo’s wife, Robbie Brooks Moore, Keb’ delivers an album that pushes his boundaries even further with brand new songs addressing topics such as immigration, depression, pollution, love, female empowerment and more. Following the deeply thought-provoking release, Keb’ lightened the mood with the release of his first-ever holiday album, Moonlight, Mistletoe & You. A decade in the making, Moonlight, Mistletoe & You includes six original songs and four cover tunes including “Please Come Home for Christmas.”
