CROSS THAT RIVER
Book by Allan & Pat Harris
The unsettled West of the 1860s provides a new life and new dreams for Blue, a run-away slave, who escapes to Texas to become one of America's first Black Cowboys. This compelling tale of freedom integrates fiction with historical fact, and each song presents a different page in this complicated chapter of American History.
The "smooth-voiced and charismatic" (The New York Times) renowned jazz composer, musician, and singer Allan Harris (Café Society Swing) returns to 59E59 to star as Blue.
