ASPEN ” The Dave Mason Band will take the stage at the base of Aspen Mountain for a free concert on Thursday, Dec. 28.

The 7 p.m. gig, at the bottom of the Little Nell run, is the second in the Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series this winter in Aspen/Snowmass.

Mason’s career spans more than 37 years and has encompassed producing, performing and songwriting, with hits like “We Just Disagree,” “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” and “So High.” His “Feeling Alright” was a hit for Joe Cocker, while Eric Clapton put Mason’s “Only You Know and I Know” on the charts.

As a founding member of the group Traffic, Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, but his guitar work can be heard on everything from The Rolling Stones’ “Beggars’ Banquet” to Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland.”

These days, he’s putting the finishing touches on a new solo album.
