Celebrating his unbelievable fiftieth year of his staggering musical career, Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, better known as Taj Mahal, will set the air ablaze with his signature style and multi-instrumental talent.

Audience members can anticipate a once in a lifetime experience as Mahal brings together sounds from traditional Gospel, the Caribbean, Africa, the South Pacific, and his own personal history. Considered one of the most prominent and influential figures in late 20th century blues and roots music, Taj Mahal is a self-taught singer-songwriter who plays the guitar, piano, banjo, and harmonica. Bringing more than half a century of experience, heart, and soul to the park, he is an artist that pushes the boundaries of expectation, using music to transform and inspire.

“It’s an unbelievable opportunity. Seeing Taj Mahal is something no one should miss...he is a living legend,” said Executive Director Ben Anderson.
