Singer-songwriter Marc Cohn found huge success in 1991 with "Walking In Memphis." It helped win him a Grammy, and established his career as a gifted storyteller, soul man and steward of American roots music. Cohn has worked with Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby and Patty Griffin. For his latest project, he's teamed up with Grammy-winning veterans of the gospel world, The Blind Boys of Alabama. The new album, titled "Work To Do," comes out Friday. Next week, Marc Cohn and the Blind Boys of Alabama kick off the Western leg of their summer tour at Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder. We're going to discuss that, and the event that nearly took his life in Denver 14 years ago.
