about this event

After winning a Grammy® for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters. Cohn combines the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. His music is grounded in the richness of American rhythm and blues, soul, and gospel, and his lyrics flow from a deft storyteller’s pen. 

Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the ’90s, at which point TIME  magazine called him one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade and Bonnie Raitt declared, Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he’s an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for. 

Cohn revisited another corner of American music’s rich heritage with gospel legends Blind Boys of Alabama on the Grammy®nominated song “Let My Mother Live,” and he worked with David Crosby on the album Lighthouse. In 2019, Cohn will release a collaborative record with The Blind Boys of Alabama titled Work to Do on August 9. Cohn continues to do what he does best: infuse American music with both a fresh perspective and a reverence for its deep roots.
