  • Acclaimed California jazz musician Marcus Shelby, with his quartet featuring vocalist Faye Carol, brings his powerful, moving musical tribute to Harriet Tubman to her homeland of Cambridge, Maryland. In Harriet Tubman: Bound for the Promised Land, Shelby has created original compositions, re-arranged and re-orchestrated spirituals, freedom songs, and blues music that illuminate the history and story of Tubman. 
  • In a review of the CD of this tribute, allaboutjazz.com calls the work "very moving and life affirming... Jazz is music of the liberation of the creative spirit, and Harriet Tubman might very well bring both tears and smiles to any thoughtful listener."
  • The performance begins at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10, in the Choptank Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort, 100 Heron Boulevard in Cambridge, Maryland.
  • Sponsored in part by the Maryland Office of Tourism and Dorchester County Tourism.
