Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

First the opening act was canceled. Then the main act was running late, so doors opened an hour later than expected (Goldstar sent an email but we didn't see it in time). Tao was much more rock than folk - ok, but not what we hoped for. To be fair, the description did mention he likes to add rock to his folk. As a vegetarian, I could only eat one entree on the menu and it was so-so.
Music is in his blood. Fusing the folk styles of his family heritage with contemporary rock ‘n’ roll, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger ’s music breaks all barriers of traditional folk bringing a unique and distinctive sound to the table.
Born into a musical family in Poughkeepsie, New York, Tao is the eldest grandchild of folk singer Pete Seeger. Tao spent his childhood in Nicaragua where his father was a war correspondent, making documentary films about the Sandinista revolution. With little access to pop music in Nicaragua, Tao cherished his AC/DC and Metallica cassettes along with the two tapes he had of his grandfather’s music. Here began the merging of rock and folk music that would come to influence Tao in his musical career.
