Chicago’s Legendary Gospel Star Elsa Harris is performing five benefit concerts in the UK to mark Anti-Slavery Day and Black History Month. Elsa played keyboards with Jessy Dixon for 35 years , toured and recorded with Paul Simon, and sang on “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”. She is a founder member of the Jessy Dixon Singers, who won three Gold Albums and six Grammy nominations. She has recently recorded an album of gospel classics “Let My People Go” to raise awareness of modern slavery and trafficking. The album is released by Authentic Media in partnership with Epiphany Trust and Jubilee Campaign. The album (and this tour) is coordinated by Epiphany Trust. Elsa’s final performance of the tour will be a very special occasion at The Grand Theatre in Clitheroe, where she recorded “Let My People Go”. She will be joined on stage by several of the musicians who played on the album and will be accompanied by The Grand’s own choir, who will perform some of their own numbers.
