True blues
With a trademark appreciation for the timeless sound of traditional blues, Corey Harris & The Rasta Blues Experience celebrate the release of Fulton Blues. This new work cultivates the earmark story-telling and soulful musicianship that define Harris’ brilliance, and unflinchingly relates the stories of the American South. Prior to the performance, Harris will discuss the detailed research that went into developing the album, whose title refers to a former slave community in Richmond older than the city itself.

Thursday 3/7 $41.20-61.80, 5pm. Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, 233 Fourth St. NW. 409-5424.
