Marc Cohn and Blind Boys of Alabama

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 Colorado Matters’ 20th anniversary, we’re listening back to conversations we’ve had over the years, including a 2019 interview with Cohn when we spoke about his new album “Work To Do.” He'd teamed up with Grammy-winning veterans of the gospel world, The Blind Boys of Alabama. We also spoke about an event that nearly took his life in Denver about 16 years ago.

Tonight, Cohn performs at The Paramount Theater in Denver and tomorrow at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs.
