Announcing Keb' Mo'

E-mail Print PDF

“I never set out to be a ‘blues guy,’ but the blues is very powerful and fuels what I do. The blues puts the ‘realness’ in it for me.” - Keb' Mo'

The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is proud to present  An Evening with the Keb’ Mo’ Band on Tuesday, January 27 at 8pm. All tickets to this reserved seating event are $42. Three-time Grammy winner and visionary roots-music storyteller Keb’ Mo’ embarks on a new chapter in his career with his recent release of BLUESAmericana. His twelfth full-length album marks the 20th anniversary of his debut Keb’ Mo', but, more important, the disc is a signpost of artistic and personal growth.

The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is proud to present songwriting legend John Hiatt in a solo concert on November 24.

With a career spanning more than four decades and musical genres from blues to new wave, John Hiatt is one of the most influential singer-songwriters in American music. Originally from Indianapolis, Hiatt cut his teeth early as a Nashville hitmaker, starting work as a professional songwriter at 18 and achieving his first Top 40 hit when Three Dog Night recorded his tune “Sure As I’m Sitting Here” in 1974. Hiatt’s songs are widely covered by everyone from Bob Dylan to Iggy Pop, and in 2008, he received the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting.
