Shows J U N E KEB’ MO’ 22 Friday 7:30p $ 48 / $ 60 / $ 74 CALLE SUR 23 Saturday 1:00p Free Admission! Blues icon Keb’ Mo’ owes his longevity as a singer and writer to a combination of masterful anecdotal writing skills, distinctive guitar versatility, and resonant, blues-soaked vocals. Every song tells a story, and every story reminds us why Keb’ Mo’ is one of the most versatile and engaging performers on today’s roots rock and blues scene. Sponsored by RICE LAKE GLASS AND DOOR Calle Sur offers a dynamic mix of acoustic f lavors from Latin America, gorgeously served. From the guitar, to the Venezuelan cuatro, to Bolivian panpipes; samba to guajira and jazz to bossa nova and salsa tunes; Calle Sur is what happens when you combine man and woman, black and white, urban and rural. Their performances are proof that “Hispanic” and “Latino” can’t be summarized.
