Cornbread Harris Interview
A complete interview and performance by this special local legend!
AIRS on MPR 91.1
FRIDAY. July 7 at 11am
AIRS on 89.3 The Current
SUNDAY. July 9 at 6pm
Back in February of this year The Hook & Ladder Theater hosted a (2) night stand with Twin City musical legend James Samuel ‘Cornbread’ Harris Sr.
The goal was simply to record the two shows in the hopes that we could capture the newer material he was writing and also have enough high-quality material to create a definitive live performance LP that best captured the experience of seeing the man live. That recording, Cornbread & Friends Live at The Hook & Ladder, was released on Cornbread’s 90th birthday earlier this spring to rave reviews.
Shortly after the release, and a series of related performances, Cornbread suffered a pulmonary embolism that seriously threatened his health and ability to breath let alone perform. Just a week or so into his recovery he was invited by MPR to participate in a live interview and performance.
This Friday (7/7) at 11am, MPR 91.1 will air a complete interview and performance by this special local legend, and again on Sunday at 6pm on 89.3 The Current. Please tune in!
A special listening party is also being held at Palmers Bar on Friday (7/7) at 11am with the artist, we hope you can join him!
Cornbread will also be appearing at the 7th Annual Roots, Rock, & Deep Blues Festival on Sat, July 15th at 3pm!
