In the valley for the American Renewable Energy Day sessions in Aspen, Taj paid a visit to KDNK to check in with us. From sustainability to talking about those folks who worked from dark til dark, got their hands dirty, and soothed their soul with what we know now as the blues, Taj wowed us all with his majestic vibe. Oh yeah, and he played his beautiful Resonator and croaked a couple songs, including Fishin' Blues. This in-studio was a highlight of the Summer.
