If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know I dig roots musician Corey Harris and the old-timey fiddle band Carolina Chocolate Drops.
Well, they’re both performing today – along with some Native American blues bands – at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.
The music will be live-streamed below, starting at 5 p.m. Eastern time.
At 3 p.m., there’ll be a scholarly discussion of the relationship between black and indigenous roots music. That will be live-streamed also.
UPDATE (08/22/09): I caught most of the Chocolate Drops, but missed Corey Harris. Below is a 7-minute clip from Corey’s set.
