Negro Spirituals Performance with Hilliard Greene- Library Room

Hilliard Greene presents “Milestone Negro Spirituals: When Folksongs Bring Freedom.” This performance/workshop in words and music brings to light the significance and beauty of the remarkable songs associated with the Underground Railroad. These uniquely American heritage songs are recognized as a distinct musical genre. The music that will be featured is based on the coded Negro spirituals that runaway slaves used to elude capture.

Selections will include: Swing Low Sweet Chariot, Wade in The Water, Deep River, Go Down Moses, Michael Row De Boat Ashore, and I Couldn’t Hear Nobody Pray

Hilliard Greene is acclaimed for composing and performing solo contrabass music. Former musical director for jazz vocalist Jimmy Scott, he is the leader of The Jazz Expressions and member of the Zigzag Quartet.
