Music: Booker T. at Lincoln Theatre

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Soul legend Booker T. Jones' musical abilities were obvious at an early age. While still in high school in, he co-wrote the instrumental hit "Green Onions" as the frontman for Booker T. and the M.G.s. Even more impressive is the 50-plus years since he's spent lending his trademark keyboards to the likes of Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Touring in support of his latest Grammy-winning album, "Potato Hole," Booker T. will take the stage at the historic Lincoln Theatre. Featuring a mixture of newly written songs and some fascinating covers (like OutKast's "Hey Ya!"), this latest work captures his alchemist style in all its glory. Columbus rock 'n' soul sensation Nick Tolford and Company opens.

When: 8 p.m. Saturday, May 1

Where: Lincoln Theatre, King-Lincoln
