In Your Ear Episode 52: Corey Harris
A native of Colorado, but a citizen of the world. Well traveled and adventurous Delta bluesman Corey Harris has made a career out of infusing the Delta blues with the music of West Africa, the Caribbean and New Orleans to make a significant statement that commands attention. In this edition of the program, we’ll share highlights of an intimate Studio A performance that spotlights his songs and the stories behind them. Take a listen as JAMinc presents In Your Ear with Virginia’s own MacArthur Fellow, Corey Harris.
In Your Ear offers a chance to discover new artists and appreciate the “in the moment” creativity and inspiration that only live music can provide. Studio A is a “great room,” a haven for artists with intimate, friendly and informed audiences and peerless audio fidelity, thanks to engineers Carlos Chafin, Andrea Stefl and Paul Bruski. JAMinc president Tim Timberlake produces the programs covering a wide range of genres including bluegrass, jazz, blues, old time, Celtic, gospel and singer-songwriters of many styles. Artists range from superior local and regional talents, to premier acts from all over the country. Concerts are held monthly except during the summer and begin with a delicious pot luck buffet in the lobby. Check our website for information and reservations: jaminc.org/events.
