Square One & Laing Entertainment in association with Rhythms presents Corey Harris with Special Guest, Kristen Lee Morris.
Fresh from a U.S co-headline tour with Aussie favourite Eric Bibb, Corey Harris returns to our shoes for the first time in over 16 years for a series of solo shows along the East Coast. He has earned substantial critical acclaim as one of the few contemporary bluesmen able to channel the raw, direct emotion of acoustic Delta blues without coming off as an authenticity-obsessed historian.
Along with Keb’ Mo’ and Alvin â€œYoungbloodâ€ Hart, he raised the flag of acoustic guitar blues in the mid-1990s. Corey Harris was prominently featured in the Martin Scorsese film ‘The Blues: A Musical Journey’ and has performed, recorded, and toured with many of the top names in music such as Billy Bragg & Wilco (on the acclaimed â€˜Mermaid Avenue’ albums), BB King, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, R.L. Burnside, Ali Farka Toure, Dave Matthews Band, Tracy Chapman and Olu Dara.
