On Thursday, August 3, New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park continues its 2017 Thursdays in the Park Concert Series from 6:30-7:30 PM with the gospel/folk duo Kim and Reggie Harris. The concert series takes place Thursday evenings during the summer through August 31 from 6:30-7:30 in New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park’s garden, 33 William Street, downtown New Bedford. Audiences of all ages will enjoy this unusual and engaging event. In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be moved indoors.
Consummate musicians and storytellers, Kim and Reggie Harris combine a strong folk and gospel legacy with a solid background in classical, rock and pop music. Creative curiosity, years of road and stage experience and interactions with performers such as Pete Seeger, Ysaye Barnwell, Jay Leno, Tom Paxton, Bernice Johnson Reagon, Harry Belafonte and others, has led them to produce music that entertains and inspires. A highlight of the evening are their songs of struggle, freedom, and songs of the American Underground Railroad.
