The foursome have released two CDs together, Guide My Feet and Spoken in Love (live concert CD). A Kim and Reggie and Magpie Concert is a moving experience of soaring vocal dynamics matched by a repertoire of inspirational and thought-provoking songs for peace and social justice, music of the Civil Rights movement, and a sprinkling of madness and hilarity.From Solstice to Chanukah to Christmas to Kwanzaa, many cultures and peoples celebrate as the days grow short in the Northern Hemisphere. These gatherings are a reminder of the changing season, of hope and freedom, of new life and new beginnings and of the basic principles for living together. Combining their many talents, Kim & Reggie Harris and Magpie will perform music and tell stories from traditions that mark The Season of Light, celebrating the many common these of these festivals: the changing seasons, respect for nature, the quest for freedom, kindness to others, unity, cooperation, purpose and creativity.About Kim & Reggie:
