Description

ArtsWestchester presents legendary musicians and storytellers Kim and Reggie Harris as they discuss and perform traditional African-American spirituals and freedom songs in an interactive performance.

Consummate musicians and storytellers, Kim and Reggie Harris combine a strong folk and gospel legacy with a solid background in classical, rock and pop music. Creative curiosity, years of road and stage experience and interactions with performers such as Pete Seeger, Ysaye Barnwell, Jay Leno, Tom Paxton,Bernice Johnson Reagon, Harry Belafonte and others, has led them to produce music that entertains and inspires.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, a city rich in cultural and musical heritage, Kim and Reggie’s early exposure to the diversity of musical styles and genres was nurtured in the schools and churches of their youth.

Audiences at venues such as The Kennedy Center, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Smithsonian Institute, Reunion Arena in TX, the Psalm Festival in Graz, Austria, as well as a myriad of theatre arts centers, festivals, universities and schools, have given this inspiring duo standing ovations for their vibrant performances.

This promises to be a great night of music and storytelling in ArtsWestchester’s downtown White Plains gallery, reserve today or by phone 914.428.4220.  Tickets are available online through 12noon on day of performance.  Doors open approximately 30 minutes before showtime.
