Two of the best singer-songwriters in blues and rock perform in the same night at the beautiful outdoor amphitheater at Montalvo Arts Center. Taj Mahal is renowned for reviving the rural blues tradition and incorporating elements of world music into the traditional forms. Tunes like "She Caught the Katy (And Left Me a Mule to Ride)" have become blues standards, and have have been covered in the film The Blues Brothers as well as by artists as diverse as James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt and Phish. Taj Mahal and his trio will share the bill with John Hiatt, whose lengthy career has made him a giant on both the rock and progressive country music scenes and earned him a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. Over the years, he's been most successful at writing hits for other artists like Bonnie Raitt and Ronnie Milsap, but along the way he's developed a growing cult following drawn in by his earthy mix of rock, country, blues and folk.

The Club Foot Orchestra is a music ensemble founded in 1983 by Richard Marriott, former Montalvo Lucas Artists Residency Program resident. After a brief career playing dramatic, complex music in San Francisco clubs, they became known for their equally dramatic and complex scores for classic silent movies. The ensemble got its name from a performance art nightclub called the “Club Foot,” which flourished in the Bayview district of San Francisco. Marriott, who lived upstairs, formed a house band that came to be called the “Club Foot Orchestra.”
The ensemble will open with accompaniment to a classic Felix short — Felix the Cat Woos Whoopee — and then perform to Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic, Metropolis.
