Reggie Harris “On solid Ground”

90+ degrees didn’t keep 50+ folks from sitting in the shade in the back garden of the library enjoying the message & music of internationally known singer-songwriter Reggie Harris in concert.

Mr. Harris last sang for us in 2018 and drew the largest in-person audience we have ever had. He continues to crisscross the country carrying a message of joy, unity, tolerance, and peace through the powerful medium of live music. A 2021 winner of both the Spirit of Folk Award from Folk Alliance International and the W.E.B. Du Bois Legacy Award, Reggie is a charismatic community builder. As the descendant of a Confederate general and a slave, he also tours as a teacher and educator on civil rights and has won many other awards for his work, has been interviewed by the media, and is currently a part time DJ on Sirius XM’s The Village. His good friend Paul Murray, sociologist and professor emeritus at Siena College, facilitated comments and conversation after the concert.
