Liner Notes

Fulton is a community in Richmond, VA that is older than the city itself. From its docks on the James river, the first African captives were marched to the city’s slave market to be sold into bondage. This Black town on the east end of the city endured for more than 300 years until its land was seized and the families living there were forcibly evicted in the name of greed masquerading as progress.

Fulton Blues, Corey Harris’ new collection of both original and classic material, celebrates the timeless sound of traditional blues with fresh, insightful lyrics that paint an unflinching picture of life in the American South, both then and now. The stories in the fourteen songs on the album range from love, loss and longing to celebration, tragedy and triumph. Fulton Blues is rooted in the blues tradition with true story-telling and soulful musicianship. It is the next step in the nearly twenty-year career of today’s most daring and innovative acoustic blues player.
