Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam is coming to the Coach House on Saturday, April 11, to take audiences on a walk through some of the greatest days of rock history with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of the legendary band Traffic.

Along with songs from Traffic—founded with Steve Winwood in 1967—Mason will also share stories, personal photos and songs of other artists featuring his guitar work. One of Mason’s favorites, featured at nearly all of his live shows, is Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along the Watchtower.” Mason’s stories include tales from his illustrious career which has also included work with many of rock and roll’s elite—Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Leon Russell, Fleetwood Mac, to name a few.
