See the moving musical production “Cross That River”- the story of an important moment in American history, where Black cowboys helped settle the West! Coming to Berglund Center February 18!

 

The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a run-away slave, who escapes from slavery to Texas to become one of America’s first Black Cowboys. This compelling tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History. The story of Blue begins in Louisiana, and with every song of this highly infectious score, the audience is moved further along on Blue’s harrowing journey across the Sabine River to freedom in the Wild West. Each song tells a unique story, at times joyful, sometimes tragic, but mostly a poignant chronicle of enduring perseverance.

 

Award-winning musician, Allan Harris, wrote Cross That River to tell the untold story of the Black West and empower Americans with an inspiring story of hope and freedom. Tony Bennett has called Harris “my favorite singer.” He’s performed with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, at Carnegie Hall, the Algonquin’s Oak Room, and the Winter and Summer Olympics. He’s performed with musical legends Vince Gill and Stevie Wonder.

 

Memories of his early career playing guitar and singing with country rock bands inspired Allan to create his 2006 song-cycle Cross That River, a stunning portrait of the African American West. Cross That River recently finished a five-week run in New York City to critical acclaim.
