Keb’ Mo’ (USA)

A genuine bluesman also recognised for his songwriting, 68 year old Keb’ Mo’ has a solid base in old-fashioned country and delta blues, but has never shied away from venturing outside his comfort zone. His variations on the central tenets of blues music are inspired by rock, country, folk and jazz. Keb’ Mo’, real name Kevin Roosevelt Moore, has won four Grammy prizes and been nominated 11 times. His latest album is Oklahoma, from June 2019, with guest spots by Robert Randolph, Rosanne Cash and Taj Mahal. Working with Taj Mahal is nothing new for Keb’ Mo’. In 2017, Keb’ Mo’ and Taj Mahal made the album TajMo, which won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album, and took the duo on tours of both USA and Europe. Through the years, Keb’ Mo’ has performed with Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Jackson Browne and Lyle Lovett, and has appeared three times at Eric Clapton’s famous Crossroads Festival. Keb’ Mo’ played at Amager Bio in Copenhagen in July 2019. His Tønder Festival concert is his only festival concert in Denmark in 2020.
