Fridays at the Farm

Every Friday is bushels of fun for families at Michigan’s Farm Garden!

September 4, 2015

John Hiatt & The Combo and The Taj Mahal Trio

Beginning with his solo career in 1974, John Hiatt experimented with a number of different styles, from rock & roll to new wave pop before he finally settled on a fusion of rock & roll, country, blues and folk.

Two-time Grammy® winning singer and songwriter Taj Mahal (appearing here in concert with his Trio) singlehandedly redefined blues with the infusion of exotic sounds from the Caribbean, Africa and the South Pacific.
