Cornelius Eady Trio

Sat   Mar   26   2022 - 5:00 PM Jackson Terminal Sun   Mar   27   2022 - 3:00 PM Jig and Reel

National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize nominated poet and playwright Cornelius Eady, recently appointed Professor of English and John C. Hodges Chair of Excellence at the University of Tennessee, has set his poetry to song with the Cornelius Eady Trio.

Eady’s songs tell the story of passing time, the Black American experience and the blues in the style of Folk and Americana music. Guitarists Charlie Rauh and Lisa Liu join Eady to create layered and graceful arrangements to bolster Eady’s adept craftsmanship as a songwriter, lyricist and poet.

His “pandemic folk song” project, Don’t Get Dead, was released in early November 2021 by June Appal Recordings. Don’t Get Dead features a collection of songs that were written and recorded in lock down during the first wave of the pandemic, from March 2020 to March 2021, and were featured on the BBC Radio 4 series SHOCK WAVE.

Eady’s Big Ears performance will feature songs and poems.
