Cory Harris on Woodsongs
Posted on: Thursday, Jan 21, 2010
COREY HARRIS has dug for the deepest and truest essence of the blues, reggae, gospel and other roots music by examining and celebrating their origins in various cultural centers – Africa, the Caribbean, Appalachia, Europe and beyond. In 2007, he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship grant – commonly referred to as a “genius award.” Corey’s latest CD on Telarc Records is blu.black. It’s a collection of primarily blues and reggae songs that examine the African-American story of earlier centuries and connects it to the present day and future generations.
