With a career spanning over 37 years, Dave Mason has truly left his mark on the music industry.
The talented performer has a concert slated next Thursday, April 14, at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe.
Tickets are $22 in advance and $27 on the day of the show.
Mason was a producer, a performer and a songwriter, not to mention being one of rock's great guitar players.
At the early age of 18, he teamed up with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood and formed the band Traffic.
A year later Dave would pen what has become a rock and roll anthem with "Feelin' Alright." Well over 48 artists have recorded this song, but the best-known version is by Joe Cocker.
Soon after this success, Dave went off on a solo career in the United States and his first album, Alone Together, struck gold and became a rock classic. He recorded five more albums, four of which received gold albums.
His most famous Top Ten single is "We Just Disagree" off of the platinum selling album Let It Flow.
Not only has he accomplished greatness during his solo career, but he has also had the privilege to perform on various other band albums such as the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and one of the most famous, Jimi Hendrix in which Dave is featured playing acoustic guitar on "All Along The Watchtower."
Dave also spent two years touring with Fleetwood Mac, the only band he formally joined, and he can be heard on the songs "Blow By Blow" and "I Wonder Why" off of the album Time.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of Traffic.
