Back by popular demand, Glenis Redmond and Scott Ainslie return to kick off Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday month. The duo, an African-American traveling poet and a Scottish-American blues singer/historian, explore relevant themes through gospel, blues, and soulful verse with music performed on vintage instruments. Intertwining African roots and American blues with poetry, their performance is an artistic reckoning.
