Muckenthaler Cultural Center: Long Time Comin’ w/Reggie Harris
February 6, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
We’re coming to Fullerton CA to this Cultural Center for a Thursday evening presentation. Please save the date and join us there.
About my work with Reggie Harris:
“Standing in concert, armed with a variety of acoustic instruments, stories, and songs, Scott Ainslie and Reggie Harris–passionate performers and friends–personalize America’s history and the shared struggle for equal social and civil rights. In their interactive concert program, Long Time Comin’, we are welcomed and wrapped up in that journey.
‘Tracing the role of music out of Africa, into the Black south and beyond–from work songs and slave songs to freedom songs–Harris and Ainslie attend to the many small and great sacrifices made by normal people in their effort to achieve what Lincoln called ‘a more perfect Union.’
‘As brothers and friends, these two gifted performers meet on the stage with illustrative stories and songs. Their performance pinpoints the lamentations and daily renewal required across the years in America’s struggle for a better future. The very sound of their voices and the content of the history they present, reaches across the boundaries of race and culture, and inspires us to join them in working toward America’s highest ideals.”
