Lansdowne Folk Club presents How We Got Here; a collaboration of songwriters on social justice with Scott Ainslie and Reggie Harris at the Twentieth Century Club, 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue, Lansdowne, PA on Thursday, February 23.
Scott Ainslie and Reggie Harris team up for an engaging and lasting encounter with music to move the mind, body and spirit. Just two musicians and friends, mingling black with white, rooted in blues and spirituals, sharing a free-flowing dialogue in music and story, the language of the soul.
Considered a master of American roots music, Scott Ainslie brings a wealth of personal and musical history to the stage. With engaging stories he provide historical context for a repertoire of Delta Blues and ragtime guitar, gospel, and music of the banjo and fiddle traditions of the Southern Appalachians.
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.
