Something Completely Different – A MacArthur Fellow Award for my College Roommate

October 3rd, 2007

This is certainly not related to law or technology, but is definitely worth noting and celebrating.

Corey Harris is a “roots blues” musician and was my college roommate. He writes and performs contemporary blues music that freely incorporates elements of traditional blues, reggae, hip hop, folk, Mali’s griot tradition and many other styles.

He was just awarded a MacArthur fellowship that includes a grant to help him keep doing what he has been doing- innovating his own style of music.

I know Corey has worked incredibly hard for what he has accomplished and I feel privileged to have gotten to know him. Congratulations Corey!
