Marc Cohn On His Upcoming February 14th Show In New York City & Future Recording Plans
After winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking In Memphis,” singer/songwriter Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters. Commercial success aside, Cohn has been a true “artist’s artist” for decades, as Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn’s early studio albums.
Last year in 2019, Marc Cohn released a critically-acclaimed collaborative record with gospel legends Blind Boys Of Alabama titled Work To Do via BMG. Work To Do was comprised of three studio tracks by Cohn and the Blind Boys — two originals and a version of the gospel standard “Walk In Jerusalem” — plus seven intimate live performances they recorded at Old Saybrook, Connecticut’s Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center; the live show was later aired as part of a PBS series.
This month Marc Cohn will be appearing at the New York Society for Ethical Culture in New York City, as promoted by City Winery. I had the pleasure of speaking with Cohn by phone on February 3, 2020 about his upcoming New York show, future recording plans, hobbies away from music and more.
