Concerts in the Valley presents Corey Harris
December 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm$25
To kick off the revival of the house concert series, Concerts In The Valley, formerly Concerts With A View, we are ecstatic to be able to provide a multi-media show featuring world-renowned blues musician and MacArthur ‘genius’ grant recipient Corey Harris.
The performance will include readings from Corey’s meticulously drawn and written book, “Bluespeople Illustrated: Legends of the Blues: Drawings, discographies and biographies of the 20th century’s greatest blues men and women.” This book is the first of its kind: an illustrated, in depth biography of the greatest blues players of the 20th century by a practicing African American blues musician.
Join us as Corey talks directly with the audience about the details of his book, ask your questions and learn the back story of one of this year’s most important literary releases. He will have copies to sell and sign during intermission and after the show.
The second half of the show will be a cd-release party of Corey’s brand new release – “the Insurrection Blues”. Several cuts from the new release will be featured in both halves of the show. Corey is joined by his band after intermission to complete this musically-inspired evening. The cd will be available for purchase and signing during and after the show.
