True Blues chronicles the extraordinary living culture of Blues music. It is a multi-media celebration featuring an album release, a documentary film, and a series of live concert events. Corey Harris, the True Blues host, is a MacArthur Fellows grant recipient. Corey will be joined by renowned roots musician Guy Davis and Grammy Award-winning Alvin Youngblood Hart. Blues is at the center of their artistry, and the blues takes center stage in True Blues. Both Corey Harris and Alvin Youngblood Hart were featured in Martin Scorcese’s The Blues: A Musical Journey, which followed Corey on a roots journey to West Africa. Alvin contributed, as well, to Wim Wenders’ The Soul Of a Man and Denzel Washington’s The Great Debaters. Guy has often followed in the Thespian footsteps of his parents, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, most recently in the Broadway revival of Finian’s Rainbow, and earlier in Mulebone and Robert Johnson: Trick the Devil.
