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.

Great concert - he is also a musician comedian so enjoyed laughing. Nice outdoor setting but there is serious problems with how they manage it. They know the audience would be mostly seniors - but yet they did not allow people to use the handrails on the stairs. I saw a serious fall. They put garbage cans all over in awkward spots not caring for patron safety. Volunteer ushers were unhelpful - had no idea where the seats were. Not friendly. train the staff and make it safe again.....I enjoyed it; I was not impacted but it was sad to see the horrible lack of safety concerns the board who was in attendance and president could care less.
