Dave Mason, legendary guitarist of Traffic, Fleetwood Mac plays Wednesday, March 9th at 7PM at the Iron Horse in Northampton

Dave Mason, at 18, teamed up with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood to form the legendary band Traffic. At 19, Mason penned the song "Feelin' Alright,” a rock and roll anthem recorded by well over 48 artists, the best known version being Joe Cocker’s.  Mason struck gold with the rock classic "Alone Together,”  followed by five albums including "Let It Flow” with the top-ten single "We Just Disagree.”   Mason performed on The Rolling Stones' "Beggars Banquet", George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass", Paul McCartney's "Listen To What The Man Said" and Jimi Hendrix's "Electric Ladyland". In fact, "All Along the Watchtower" features Dave on acoustic guitar. The classic Dylan track remains a big favorite in Dave's live show. In October of 1993, Dave Mason formally joined the legendary group Fleetwood Mac and spent two years touring with them around the world. Their 1995 album "Time” features Dave's lead vocals on several songs. In 1996 Dave returned to touring with his own band, which included former Three Dog Night bassist Rich Campbell. In 1998, he toured with Traffic band-mate Jim Capaldi, and now is performing as The Dave Mason Band throughout North America, which includes Gerald Johnson (Bass), John Sambataro (guitar), Alvino Benett (Drums); Bill Mason (Keyboards.)
