Synopsis

Album Description
On Guide My Feet, Kim and Reggie Harris have enlisted the talents of their long-time friends and musical collaborators, Magpie (Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner) to create a stunning album of depth, social vision, and joyous celebration of the human spirit. Breathtaking vocal harmonies and sensitive musical accompaniment highlight the timeless power of this wide-ranging collection of songs. Newly written compositions by members of the foursome are charged with passion and power and seem destined to take their place in the canon of the folk and political tradition. Standout tracks include the traditional title song; "Sarowiwa," Terry Leonino's tribute to slain writer and activist Ken Sarowiwa; the civil rights anthem "Woke Up This Morning"; the Harrises' "In the Shelter of Each Other," African rock band Osibisa's "Woyaya"; and Pete Seeger's classic "Old Devil Time," complete with a spoken vocal by Pete himself. Other guests on Guide My Feet include Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, David Buskin, Ralph Gordon, Brian Melick and others.

CD Reviews

An extraordinary, vibrant set of songs for justice
Marc DelMonico | Washington, DC United States | 01/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kim and Reggie and Magpie are some of the finest "folks" producing the "folk" genre these days! Their previous albums, both seperate and together, have mixed the best of traditional folks tunes, African-American spirituals, and multinational anthems with new and very fresh variations and harmonies. They are naturals together! Their songs carry the power of many cultures and they work very hard to tell the stories of these cultures through the songs. Whether it be the light and moving sounds of "Woke Up This Morning," calling attention to the plight of the Native Americans through "The Wind Won't Know Me There," or the humerous but poignant message about recycling in "Cash For Your Trash," Kim, Reggie, Terry, and Greg never fail to draw you into their passion for life, peace, love, and justice."
