TAJ MAHAL CANCELS DUE TO ILLNESS
June 8, 2015 – Easthampton, MA – The Northampton, MA-based band Speedy Ortiz has just been added to the 2015 Solid Sound Festival lineup. The acclaimed indie-rockers will perform on opening night, Friday, June 26, filling a spot vacated by Taj Mahal who is forced to cancel his appearance because of health issues. Watch Speedy Ortiz perform live at WFUV below.
“We were obviously disappointed when we found out that Taj had to cancel, but that was alleviated some when we discovered we could get one of our favorite young bands, Speedy Ortiz,” festival organizer and Wilco manager Tony Margherita said. “We wish Taj a restful re-charge and look forward to seeing him back on the road later this summer.”
