Ten days ago, I pointed y’all to a couple of free MP3s from Corey Harris, neo-traditional blues artist.
Well, Mr. Harris is in the news, because yesterday he was named a MacArthur Fellow. That means he’ll receive a so-called “genius grant” from the MacArthur Foundation – $500,000 over the next five years, “no strings attached.”
Congratulations, Corey Harris!
(Here are all 24 of this year’s MacArthur Fellows.)
Let me celebrate by streaming a track off his new reggae CD, “Zion Crossroads.” (Downloadable from iTunes.) Click here to check out “Heathen Rage.”
