JAY — Soul and blues singer and guitarist Dave Keller will be performing a one night only benefit concert for Head Start. The show will take place Saturday, January 18 at 8 p.m. at the Foeger Ballroom at Jay Peak.
Keller, based out of Montpelier, is considered one of the finest soul and blues men of his generation. His last CD, “Where I’m Coming From,” won Best Self-Produced CD of the Year at The International Blues Challenge, and reached #2 on B.B. King’s Bluesville on Sirius/XM Radio.
He has recorded and co-written with Ronnie Earl, toured with Mississippi blues master Johnny Rawls, and is a protégé of deep soul singer Mighty Sam McClain. Drawing comparisons with Curtis Mayfield, Boz Scaggs, and James Hunter, Keller has built a loyal fan base, playing the largest blues festivals from Boston to San Francisco.

There will be a cash bar and a mega raffle at the show. Tickets are $10.00 each and are available at The Wood Knot Bookshop, the NEKCA offices, online at Catamountarts.org, or at the door. The purchase of a ticket is a donation to Head Start.
