Victor Wooten Sitting in for African Highlife Concert

The 9th Annual Highlife Concert at the University of Colorado at Boulder is going to feature Victor Wooten on bass tonight, as he sits in with the CU-Boulder West African Highlife Ensemble. The Ensemble’s usual bassist, Vusi Mahlasela had to return to South Africa unexpectedly Wednesday morning for his grandmother’s funeral.

For those in the area, tickets are available online at CU’s concert web site and by phone at (303) 492-8008.
