Corey Harris and his band make a rare visit to the UK in the spring and the above four dates will be part as part of Root Music and Band on the Wall’s Strategic Touring Programme.

Corey Harris has earned substantial critical acclaim for his interpretation of the delta blues. Combining the raw direct emotion of the genre with contemporary sounds and influences ranging from New Orleans to the Caribbean and Africa, Harris manages to be both eclectic and genuine whilst staying true to the traditional blues formula.

Harris has released a string of acclaimed albums and has collaborated with bands and musicians across musical genres including Taj Mahal, Wilco, Ali Farka Toure and Natalie Merchant. In 2003 he was the featured artist and narrator of the landmark Martin Scourcese film “Feels Like Going Home”, which traced the evolution of the blues from West Africa to the southern US.

These four shows will provide a rare opportunity to see and hear one of the blues originals and a truly unique voice in contemporary music.
