Singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb' Mo's music is a living link to the seminal Delta blues that traveled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America before evolving into a universally celebrated art form. His distinctive sound embraces multiple eras and genres, including pop, rock, folk and jazz. The spirit of blues godfather Robert Johnson also dwells in his work.
The Keb' Mo' Band performs at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at the University at Buffalo's Center for the Arts.
Keb' Mo' is a three-time Grammy-winner for Best Contemporary Blues Album. "The Reflection," his first studio album since 2006, will be released this August. For more information, visit www.kebmo.com or www.ubcfa.org.
