The Dave Mason Traffic Jam show originally scheduled for May has been rescheduled and will now be coming to Lewisburg on Sunday, Aug. 3 at Carnegie Hall of West Virginia featuring Dave Mason Rock & Roll Hall Fame inductee and Traffic co-founding member – with his exciting new show.
On Tuesday, May 13, Mason released his new album, Future’s Past (Something Music/MRI) featuring new versions of his classic songs plus new materials that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years.
Of the nine-song new release, Mason says, “There is a great version of ‘Dear Mr. Fantasy’ that is kind of a re-write. There is a version of ‘World in Changes’ that is nothing like the original and there is a great live version that is absolutely beautiful of ‘Sad and Deep as You.’ There are two or three songs that were on a CD called 26 Letters 12 Notes that I did seven years ago; a Robert Johnson song, ‘Come On in My Kitchen’ and a brand new song called ‘That’s Freedom.”’
Renowned for such Traffic hits as ‘Feelin’ Alright’ (covered by Joe Cocker) and ‘Hole In My Shoe’ plus his solo signature tracks ‘We Just Disagree’ and ‘Only You Know and I Know,’ Mason’s acclaimed solo career continues to flourish as he tours the U.S. With his Traffic Jam shows-earning accolades since kicking off on Jan. 3 in Atlantic City, NJ – Mason says, “I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music.”
The iconic singer, songwriter and guitarist has been touring and recording regularly since he cofounded Traffic in 1966, after which he went on to a successful and acclaimed solo career as well as recording and/or touring with artists including Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Delaney & Bonnie, Graham Nash, Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Fleetwood Mac and more.
