A fusion-minded country bluesman
Louisiana-born, New England–educated guitarist and singer-songwriter Corey Harris carries forward songs of the blues tradition while creating an original vision of the blues by adding influences from reggae, soul, rock and West African music. Awarded a MacArthur "Genius Award" Fellowship in 2007, he is a truly unique voice in contemporary music with one foot in tradition and the other in contemporary experimentation. Corey recently returned to the road and the studio with great new material, and we're glad to hear the latest from this artist in the Family Room—those who've been around The Ark for a while will remember the memorable shows he did at the club in the 1990s and 2000s.
