Veteran British rocker Dave Mason slips of a bit of a wink into the name of his current touring project: “Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam, 1967-2015 World Tour.” Mason, of course, was a mad-successful solo act in the mid-‘70s, but before that an on-again, off-again member of the jam-oriented British rock band Traffic – a band more associated with the multi-instrumental, vocal and song-co-writing talents of Steve Winwood than with Mason. The other original members of Traffic, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood, have left the planet, and Mason’s claim to the Traffic brand is legitimate, even if the band’s long-form jam vehicles have very little to do with the easygoing songwriter rock of Mason’s famous solo work.

Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam visits the legendary Bearsville Theater in Woodstock on Thursday, October 8 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $25, $45 and $55 and are available at www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock.
