New directions from a fusion-minded country bluesman
Louisiana's Corey Harris has a unique talent for both getting to the essence of the country blues style and for finding the places where it has intersected with other styles, both old and new. He's played with R&B and jazz musicians, delved into the African roots of the blues, and explored country sounds. Now, with his Rasta Blues Experience, Corey discovers the unexpected commonalities between two of the Western hemisphere's most familiar and yet most mysterious blues forms, blues and reggae. It works beautifully, and you just have to see it to experience it fully -- there's a spirituality and a wisdom in Corey's music that's only amplified by this new development, and it's a beautiful thing. Corey Harris & Rasta Blues come to town with a new release, "Father Son, Mother Earth."
