Blues Traveler

Oct 23 • 7:30pm
WVU Canady Creative Arts Center

In 1987, the four original members of Blues Traveler – John Popper, Chandler Kinchla, Brendan Hill and the late Bobby Sheehan – gathered in their drummer’s parents’ basement in Princeton, New Jersey, to jam. From these high school sessions emerged a band that would go on to release 14 studio albums and counting – four of which that have gone gold, three platinum and one six-times platinum. Over an illustrious career, Blues Traveler has played more than 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people. Their single, “Run-Around,” was the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history and earned them a Grammy for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Blues Traveler played a key part in the reemerging jam band scene in the ‘90s and spearheaded the H.O.R.D.E touring musical festival. The band’s latest album, “Traveler’s Blues,” earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Blues Album in 2021, bringing their journey full circle.
