$20 adult/$15 student

Corey Harris is a powerful singer and guitarist who got his first taste of the blues via his mother’s collection of Lightnin’Hopkins records. He honed his art form on the streets of New Orleans, while going on to study African Linguistics in Cameroon. That led him to a lifelong exploration of African-American blues that has taken him from the Mississippi delta to Mali, where he recorded an album with Ali Farka Touré — a journey detailed in Martin Scorcese’s PBS Documentary The Blues, in which he was a featured performer and narrator in the episode “Feel Like Goin’ Home.” Awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2007, his creativity, originality, and commitment to the art form of the blues is a joy to experience.
