HUNTINGTON, W.V. – Tedeschi Trucks Band, America’s premier rock-and-roll big band, touring in support of their new album, I Am The Moon, will rock the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center Tuesday, Feb. 28th at 7:30 p.m. This Grammy Award-winning 12-piece rock and soul powerhouse holds a well-deserved reputation as one of the best live acts touring today. Tedeschi Trucks Band will be joined by special Guest Jack Broadbent.
Led by the husband/wife duo of guitarist Derek Trucks and singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, “two of the best roots rock musicians of their generation” (NPR), TTB is known for its world-class musicianship and contemporary blend of a wide range of American musical influences that also define their extensive catalog.
I Am The Moon,TTB’s acclaimed fifth studio release “explodes with joyful, powerful and positive music (Guitar Player).” Written while off the road during the pandemic, I Am The Moon finds them “at their finest and most adventurous” (NPR) and captures a prolific and collaborative songwriting period for TTB that was inspired by an ancient poem of star-crossed lovers. I Am the Moon, released in 2022, includes four albums, I. Crescent, II. Ascension, III. The Fall, IV. Farewell and four companion films – delivering more than two hours of music that unfold across a robust tapestry of soul, rock, blues, funk, roots and Eastern explorations that propel the treasured American ensemble into new and thrilling creative territory.
Since forming in 2010, TTB’s caravan has traveled countless miles to bring their music to audiences around the world. From sold-out multi-night residencies across America to barnstorming tours through Europe and Japan to their flagship Wheels of Soul annual summer tour, the band’s shows are an eagerly anticipated highlight of the live music calendar and “nothing short of exhilarating” (Salon). Whether on stage or in the studio, when these supremely talented artists get together, it’s a musical experience of profound quality.
