Taj Mahal 2014 Tour Schedule
Just as the Taj Mahal in India has become one of the world's most recognized icons,
the blues and roots musician Taj Mahal has become one of the most prominent and influential artists in all of music. With
almost fifty years of experience with blues, roots, and rock, Taj Mahal is undoubtedly one of the greatest and most prolific
blues artists of the last century. He has no desire to be pigeonholed to just one genre; instead, he likes to experiment with
all different types of music to create a beautiful and multicultural repertoire of hits. By drawing inspiration from the South,
West Africa, Latin America, Europe, the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, and many other spots around the world, Taj Mahal has
created a truly international form of music, and he is undoubtedly the best artist to accomplish this.
Starting in June,
Taj Mahal is heading to some major cities around the U.S. and Canada, such as Glenside, Apple Valley, Saratoga, Coquitlam,
and Denver. As he heads out on the road to bring his eclectic music to a city near you, make sure that you are in the audience
and get to witness his incredible musical talent. Head to StubHub today to grab your Taj Mahal tickets for his upcoming shows!
Taj Mahal Background
Born Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, Taj Mahal was raised in a musical household—his
mother sang in a local gospel choir and his father was a talented West Indian piano player and jazz artist. From a young age,
Taj Mahal was entranced by music, knowing from the start that he wanted to pursue his passion for music. Before he was even
a teenager, the young Fredericks knew how to play the piano, the clarinet, the trombone, and the harmonica. When he was eleven,
Fredericks lost his father in a tragic accident, an event that was very traumatic for the young boy.
Even after the
loss of his father, Fredericks still indulged his love of music, and in 1964 he moved west to Los Angeles to pursue a career
in music. He formed a blues band, Rising Sons, and quickly landed a record deal with Columbia Records. Unfortunately, the
band never achieved much success, likely due to the fact that it was one of the first interracial bands in American history.
This didn't stop Fredericks, though, since it was impossible to constrain his musical talents. He was soon working with some
of the biggest names in music, such as Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and even The Rolling Stones.
(who chose the stage name Taj Majal because of a dream he had about social injustice in India) quickly became such a respected
and coveted collaborator in the music scene, he decided to further his solo career and signed to Warner Bros. Records. His
solo career has been illustrious and prolific, and he has remained one of the most influential artists in the history of music.
Taj Mahal has two Grammy Awards and a Blues Music Award for his groundbreaking work in music, and his impact on the various
genres of music is far-reaching. Fortunately, Taj Mahal isn't ready to end his five-decade career just yet, and you can catch
him in concert by heading to StubHub now!
Since the beginning of his solo career in 1968,
Taj Mahal has released 25 studio albums, many of them receiving great critical praise. Some of his greatest hit singles include
"Statesboro Blues", "Leaving Trunk", "Corrina", "Take A Giant Step", "Six Days on the Road", "Farther on Down the Road", among
countless others. His massive repertoire of songs always makes for a great concert, as you are never quite sure which of his
hit songs he will play. But one thing is for certain—when Taj Mahal steps on stage, whether he is on his guitar, piano,
or harmonica, he knows how to put on an incredible and unforgettable show. Seeing him perform live is a unique and rare opportunity,

Taj Mahal almost didn't become a
singer. He debated between pursuing his love of singing and pursuing his love of farming. Although he still loves to grow
his own food and support farmers with Farm Aid concerts, Taj Mahal ultimately chose music, for which all of his dedicated
fans are grateful.
