Centrum is pleased to announce that Taj Mahal will be returning to Port Townsend in August to headline the 20th Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. He performed a number of solo shows at Centrum in the 1990s, but this will be his first appearance at the Blues Festival, taking place July 31-August 7, 2011.

He will join us midweek for a special concert at McCurdy Pavilion on August 3. In addition to the concert appearance, he will be a featured guest at a meet-and-greet, open exclusively to registered workshop participants, earlier in the day.

Visit our Blues site for complete information. The Peninsula Daily News also has a nice article about the announcement.
