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:

Swearingen & Kelli will be playing a free online concert for the Liriodendron Mansion as part of our Music at the Mansion concert series on Sunday, September 27 from 7 to 8 pm.

AJ Swearingen and Jayne Kelli (Swearingen & Kelli) reach deep into their family histories and their own personal crusades. They deliver stories about endurance, addictions, old stomping grounds, false starts and getting things right the second time around.

Folk icon Tom Rush recorded and released their song, “You’re Not Here With Me” on his last studio release with Nanci Griffith providing harmony. Their new album, Cold-Hearted Truth, released in September 2019, has been featured on Cowboys and Indians, Americana Highways and Red Line Roots who said “they’ve made something all their own with their own signature approach, and it’s one that others would do well to emulate down the road.”

 From Baltimore to Central Texas, Arty Hill packs the bars and dance floors with his unique brand of modern Honky Tonk. He sings with an “‘everyman’ quality…reminiscent of Johnny Cash.” (Vintage Guitar Magazine). His songs – marrying the soul of classic country with the wry storytelling of Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt – have been recorded by the Grammy-nominated Kenny and Amanda Smith Band, Alt-Country pioneers Jason & the Scorchers, Rockabilly Queen Bee Marti Brom, and Austin’s Texas Sapphires, among others.

 His recordings have topped the FAR (Freeform American Roots) chart, and his songs have appeared in two seasons of “Gun it with Bennie Spies” on the Sportsman Channel and in the 2017 movie “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” starring Elijah Wood. Arty is also co-founder of the Hank Williams Songwriting Workshop in Montgomery, AL, and was a 2018 instructor at the Augusta Heritage Center’s Classic Country Week in Elkins, WVa. His latest recording, “Live: Church on Saturday Night,” is a shack-shaking live recording of Arty and his top notch band, the Long Gone Daddys (Dave Chappell – guitar, Lynn Kasdorf – pedal steel, Ira Gitlin – upright bass, Ed Hough – drums).

Bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs, and enjoy the music of this multi-faceted performer on the beautiful grounds of the historic Liriodendron Mansion!

Sold Out: Music at the Mansion Presents Josh Christina

This concert has been sold out. We encourage you to attend our September 13 show and our many free online concerts. For additional information, please visit https://liriodendron.com/calendar/

 Music at the Mansion is excited to welcome Josh Christina to his first show at the Liriodendron Mansion on Sunday, August 23 from 5 to 8 pm! The concert will be held outdoors on our beautiful grounds, with plenty of room for social distancing!

Called a “mix between Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Elton John”, Josh’s energetic brand of 50’s rock n roll makes the classics sound brand new. Josh Christina will restore your confidence in the ability of young musicians to carry on the great tradition of rock’s pioneers. Josh writes his own music, refurbishes the classics, and plays a mean piano.  Josh Christina is a rock n roll revivalist whose music provides a bridge across generational lines by going backward to move into the future.

The piano aficionado can be heard on his two Nashville-recorded albums, “Good Old Love” and “I’m 21″, both produced by Kent Wells. His album, “Instincts” was recorded at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis, co produced by two time Grammy award winner Jon Carroll (Starland Vocal band.) He followed that up with the single ”Let’s Get Woke” in 2019, and has just released his latest single “Rockstar”.
