Reggie Harris and Pat Wictor at Meeting House Presents
Reggie Harris has been dubbed an Ambassador of Joy, Hope, and Freedom, and his new album, On Solid Ground, captures all of those qualities.  The lead track, Its Who We Are, introduced as a single for Black History Month, in the wake of the January 6 insurrection, sets the tone.  Its a hard-charging call-to-action, featuring Pat Wictor on slide guitar. With civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., and John Lewis as his inspirations, Reggie dares to address the divisions we face. When people ask, How did we get here, he responds, Its who we are, but it doesnt have to be that way:  Its in our hearts | Its in our hands| Its in our minds | But we can change!

Reggie Harris is an innovative guitarist, a fearlessly creative vocalist, and an engaging storyteller whose concert performances are infused with joy. Its clear to all that he deeply loves singing and that it is more than his work. But thats not all.

Uniquely committed to music as a community building vehicle, Reggies music shares insightful perspectives on issues of  life, history, education and human rights. In the spirit of his mentors, Pete Seeger and Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, (founder of Sweet Honey in the Rock), Reggie is a master songleader who loves to help people discover that they can make a difference at any age, wherever they may live.

Pat Wictor first burst on the folk and acoustic scene as an innovative slide guitarist known for fresh and memorable interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs.  Since then he has made his mark as a singer-songwriter penning lean and poetic songs that honor - and subvert - rural blues and gospel traditions. For seven years he toured as one third of Brother Sun, the powerful harmonizing trio with Joe Jencks and Greg Greenway, garnering critical acclaim, two #1 CDs on the Folk DJ charts, and a continent-spanning tour schedule.  Wictors newest recording is a duo album titled Counterpoise,  a collaboration with jazz vocalist Deborah Latz.   The two first sang together at a vocal improvisation workshop led by Bobby McFerrin.  His most recent solo release, This is Absolutely Real:  Visions and Versions of Phil Ochs, reached #2 on the Folk-DJ charts and was nominated for Best Tribute Album by the Independent Music Awards.

An American by birth, Pat's early years were spent in Venezuela, the Netherlands, Norway, England, and East Texas. His time abroad gave him an outsiders wide perspective, and set him on a journey to understanding America - and his own American-ness - through music.  His early experiences made him accustomed to charting his own course and being ready for the unexpected.
