Deeper Than the Skin: Reggie Harris & Greg Greenway

Reserve your seat now for our next show, February 8

A Musical Presentation on Race

This is not just another evening of talk.

This is not just a concert of entertaining songs. 


DEEPER THAN THE SKIN is a experience of singing and listening … of experiencing a connection so deep that it makes you laugh, smile, cry and reconsider what you know about our history. It’s an invitation to open your heart and mind to a story of shared humanity that resonates with your own.
Two friends … one Black, one White … one from the North … one from the South. Musicians, storytellers, students of history and world travelers … born three days apart! Two separate narratives forged into one powerful friendship aimed at finding common ground and helping others to do the same.

Deeper Than the Skin brings together a remarkable journey that started 30 years ago and is now offering hope to people all over the nation. It’s a presentation that ends with an open dialogue that moves the audience from emotion into action … that gives voice and direction to the question “What can I do?”

Deeper Than the Skin is an interactive, engaging invitation to take a step into a new reality. It’s an affirmation of the notion that a more perfect union begins …. with us!      

   

“Greg and Reggie are two of the most engaging performers you’d want to enjoy on a concert evening. To be invited into their lives to share their deepest concerns and memories is a rare privilege in a very memorable evening.”

OCEAN Celtic Quartet—The Lusty Month of May!

Songs of Love, Lust, and the Arrival of Spring
May 10, 2019

The ancient Irish festival of Beltane (May Day) signaled the end of winter and the coming of summer. Come hear Washington, D.C.’s award-winning Celtic ensemble the OCEAN Celtic Quartet in a program of traditional and original music celebrating the return of the sun and the greening of the land. OCEAN’s soaring vocals, fiery fiddle tunes, and rollicking button accordion will have your heart swelling and your toes tapping, while you sing along with songs that stretch back for centuries . . . songs of love, lust, and everything in between. In addition to seasonal music, enjoy dramatic readings of May poetry from the Middle Ages up through the 1800s . . . even a special guest appearance by the ancient Green Man, also known as Jack-in-the-Green!

OCEAN’s members are bandleader/multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Cutting (a Washington Area Music Association Musician of the Year); mesmerizing vocalist Chris Noyes (formerly of the maritime music group Crab Alley); champion Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds; and traditional singer/Ph.D. folklorist Stephen Winick.

“Nothing short of spellbinding.”
The Washington Post

Join us for this joyful celebration to mark the end of the cold and dark and the return of the light and warmth. If you don’t have spring fever when you come, you’ll definitely catch it by the time this concert is over!
