True Blues: Sin and Redemption
Hosted by Corey Harris, a MacArthur Grant recipient, along with bluesman, Guy Davis & renowned roots musician, Alvin Youngblood Hart. True Blues chronicles the extraordinary living culture of the blues in an evening of music and conversation. In bringing the True Blues film to the concert stage, the True Blues concert vividly brings to life this crucial wellspring of American music.
Both Corey & Alvin were featured in Martin Scorcese’s “The Blues: A Musical Journey,” which followed Corey on a roots journey to West Africa.
Blues is at the center of Corey, Guy and Alvin’s artistry, and the blues takes center stage in True Blues, the concert.
