Corey Harris Band

January 28 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

“[Harris] is simply a genius. When it comes to the old country blues, which is always the center hub of his musical sojourns, he is truly and heir to the best of the original masters. He is not just keeping the acoustic, traditional blues alive. He dares to move forward…his blues are the real deal.” — The Country Blues

About: Accomplished guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, Corey Harris has carved out his own niche in blues. Starting out as a street singer in New Orleans, Harris lived in Cameroon, West Africa for a year in his twenties–an experience which would have a profound impact on his later work. In spite of having recorded many old songs from the blues tradition, Harris also aims to create an original vision of the blues by incorporating influences from different genres, some of which include reggae, soul, rock and West African music. Following Harris in the decade from 1995 to 2005, one can truly appreciate Harris’ maturation from interpreter to songwriter. Some of his more imaginative compositions are marked by a deliberate eclecticism while other works stay true to the traditional blues formula of compelling vocals and down-home guitar. With one foot in tradition and the other in contemporary experimentation, Harris is a truly unique voice in contemporary music.
