Mose Allison Trio
Fri, Jun 6, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute

At the age of seventy Mose Allison continues to play, record and work steadily. As a boy he plowed mules, picked and chopped cotton, cut and hauled hay. "I’m probably one of the few remaining blues singers with that experience" he says. Mose didn't commence his recording career till nearly age 30 after moving to New York City where he polished his reputation working with Stan Getz, among others, and released his first record, Back Country Suite, on Prestige in 1957.

The New Yorker has called him a national treasure and British bluesman John Mayall once said everyone he knows in England was raised on his music. Legions of other musicians -- like Bonnie Raitt, Pete Townshend, and Van Morrison -- sing his praises. "I’m playin’ the music I like. I’m playin’ music for a certain type of person. Fortunately, there are more and more of us. At least there are more comin’ to see me than there were 30 years ago or so."

OFAM is pleased to present Mose Allison in concert Friday, June 6th at The Shedd.
