About the Event
We will be closing out the 2021 Writing The Watershed Literary Festival with thess amazing storytelling and musical performances from two incredible songwriters and musicians.
Reggie Harris is a singer-songwriter, storyteller and world-renowned song-leader who is a powerful interpreter of the global music narrative. A passionate, engaging inspirational entertainer and concert artist Reggie is recognized for focusing new energy on the important role of music in the discourse for inclusion and the struggle for human rights using the lessons of history as a base. His April 2021 release On Solid Ground, the number one CD on the FolkDJ Charts for May 2021, is a collection of 13 songs compiled in response to the challenges and changes in American civic circles stirred by the COVID pandemic and years of racial and political unrest that erupted post the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and thousands of others. Reggie’s leadership in racial and interfaith dialogue continues to open opportunities for dialogue and courageous conversation
Sara Milonovich is an award-winning singer, fiddler, songwriter/composer, and bandleader. Growing
up on a working farm in the rural Town of Florida, Montgomery County, she began playing fiddle when she was four, and by nine was leading her own band (around the same time she learned to drive a tractor.) Her song, “Scarecrow”, was a Folk Category finalist in the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and her song, “Newsprint”, was a semifinalist in the 2012 Show Me the Music Songwriting Contest. She continues to teach traditional music in schools and universities throughout the US, as part of American cultural outreach programs abroad, in workshops/masterclasses at festivals, and in private fiddle lessons.
