Way back in the early 1980’s, my grandmother went on a trip to Europe. When she got back, she had little gifts for everyone, and one of them was a napkin signed by Bob Dylan to my sister Abbie.
It tuns out that she was in a store or cafe and heard a commotion, with people around here saying rather excitedly “Boob Di-lan. Boob Di-lan.” She said she saw the crowd gathering, went over, and got his autograph. I’m pretty sure she had very little idea of who he was.
WEST BRATTLEBORO — Singer-songwriters Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway will appear in concert at All Souls’ Church on Saturday, April 14th, at 7 p.m. with their joint production, “Deeper Than The Skin – Building Bridges with Music” addressing the racial divide.
Longtime friends and collaborators, Harris and Greenway put their experiences together in “Deeper Than The Skin,” a concert presentation that explores their unique history as a white man from the capital of the Confederacy and a black man whose maternal ancestor was a slave on a plantation just outside of Richmond. They have built a bridge between their lives through 30 years of friendship, shared goals, and a passion to build community.
