Blues guitarist Keb' Mo', a three-time Grammy-winner and eight-time Grammy nominee, performs at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Thursday, March 27 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $39 to $59.

Keb' Mo' has been making critically acclaimed albums since 1994 when he released his self-titled debut and became a fresh face in the blues/roots genre. His second release, "Just Like You" in '96 won him the first of three Grammys. It dared a deeper venture into the joyful and healing aspects of the blues and a more mainstream style.

During Keb' Mo's 18-year career he has been recognized with a vast number of honors, awards and nominations, including Grammy's, BMI awards, and numerous WC Handy Blues Awards.

Keb' Mo' can be heard on television as a composer or providing a theme song or even in an occasional acting role. Some notables are: "Touched By An Angel," "The West Wing," "The Martha Stewart Show," CBS's "Mike and Molly," and "Sesame Street." On film he acted along side Danny Glover in the 2007 John Sayles movie, "Honeydripper."

This past year he was a part of two PBS specials: "Live at Infinity Hall," and "Red, White and Blues," In Performance at The White House. After the release of "Suitcase" in 2006, Keb' took a two-year hiatus from recording to focus on his family, and work on film and TV projects. His latest album "The Reflection," is a journey deep into life and an even greater expansion of his musical body of work. The Reflection is not, in essence, a blues album. In sound and spirit, it's closer to the work of African-American "folk soul" singer/songwriters like Bill Withers, Bobby Womack and Terry Callier.

The Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South St. in Morristown. For more information or tickets contact the box office at 973-539-8008 or visit www.mayoarts.org.
