Livestream Concert: Music at the Mansion Presents Reggie Harris

Livestream Concert: Music at the Mansion Presents Reggie Harris

The Liriodendron Foundation is excited to present Reggie Harris in a free online concert as part of our Music at the Mansion series on Sunday, October 25 from 7 to 8 pm.

Reggie Harris is an innovative guitarist, a fearlessly creative vocalist, and an engaging storyteller whose concert performances are infused with joy. It’s clear to all that he deeply loves singing and that it is more than his work. But that’s not all.

Uniquely committed to “music as a community building vehicle,” Reggie’s music shares insightful perspectives on issues of  life, history, education and human rights. In the spirit of his mentors, Pete Seeger and Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, (founder of Sweet Honey in the Rock), Reggie is a master songleader who loves to help people discover that they can make a difference at any age, wherever they may live.

A songwriter of great depth and passion, Reggie Harris writes from a personal sense of mission that merges a world wise point of view with a singularly hopeful stance that life, though often challenging, is filled with possibility and hope. His songs reveal thoughts about life and love and some of the deep aspects of the human experience and cover topics from his own personal journey to world issues and history.

The concert will be shown for free on Zoom and Facebook live. You can join the concert by logging onto:

She is also an engineer and producer working with many artists across all genres.   She recorded with and produced some of the best of women’s music including the legendary “Meg & Cris at Carnegie Hall” (1983), as well as 3 of Cris’s solo works..

She has released 16 albums through the years and is currently in the studio recording her 17th album, “Stone by Stone” which is scheduled for a November release and is proving to be her best work yet.
