Description

Reggie Harris

A well-traveled performer, lecturer and cultural ambassador, Reggie Harris has earned wide acclaim and respect from peers and audiences alike throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and around the world. He combines spirituals and roots music, historic inspiration, and moving original songs, often on themes of unity and social justice. Knowing this, audiences have bestowed upon him a fitting slogan: “Songs of Joy, Hope, and Freedom.”

Steeped in the tradition of African American spirituals, folk, gospel, rock and the music of civil and human rights, Reggie is recognized as one of the foremost presenters of songs, who, in the spirit of his mentors Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte and Bernice Johnson Reagon, gets people smiling and singing.

John Flynn

John Flynn is an American singer-songwriter and activist. His career has embodied an authentic troubadour odyssey that moved legendary folk DJ Gene Shay to call Flynn “the most quintessential folk singer in my life”, and Andrew L. Braunfeld of the Philadelphia Folk Festival to say, “It has been disappointing that the world of folk music has not, during the last half century, been creating many new heroes. John Flynn is a notable exception, and is worthy of our respect as he follows the paths of Woody Guthrie, Phil Ochs and Kris Kristofferson.”

Over three and a half decades, John Flynn’s music has carried him from Jersey shore bars to Nashville’s Music Row. In 2005, Arlo Guthrie invited John to join musical legends like Willie Nelson and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott on the historic “Train to New Orleans” tour following Hurricane Katrina. It was on that trip that Ramblin’ Jack Elliott generously dubbed Flynn, “the John Lennon of the plasma generation!”
