Taj Mahal plays the Blues

September 10 @ 8:00 pm

We are excited to welcome Taj Mahal to Stuart’s Opera House on
Friday, September 10, 2021 at 8:00pm! “The blues is bigger than most people think,” Taj Mahal
says. “You could hear Mozart play the blues. It might be more like a lament. It might be more
melancholy. But I’m going to tell you: the blues is in there.” Get tickets and information at

Taj is a towering musical figure — a legend who transcended the blues not by leaving them
behind, but by revealing their magnificent scope to the world. Quantifying the 77-year-old’s
significance is impossible, but people try anyway. A 2017 Grammy win for TajMo, Taj’s
collaboration with Keb’ Mo’, brought his Grammy tally to three wins and 14 nominations, and
underscored his undiminished relevance more than 50 years after his solo debut. Blues Hall of
Fame membership, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association, and
other honors punctuate his résumé. Taj appreciates the accolades, but his motivation lies
elsewhere. “I just want to be able to make the music that I’m hearing come to me — and that’s
what I did,” Taj says. “When I say, ‘I did,’ I’m not coming from the ego. The music comes from
somewhere. You’re just the conduit it comes through. You’re there to receive the gift.”

Taj Mahal will perform at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio on Friday, September 10 th
at 8:00pm, doors open at 7:00pm. Tickets are available right now! Reserved seats are $65.00 in
advance or $70.00 at the door, Box seats are $80.00 in advance and $85.00 at the door, and
