Two performances on both Friday and Saturday nights, at 6:30pm and 9pm.

“An irresistible force of truth, beauty, and electric improvisation”
– The Village Voice

Fusing soul, rock, jazz, blues, and avant-garde together into a compelling genre-defying sound, Harriet Tubman combines cerebral extemporizations with volcanic danceability. Given the band’s namesake, it’s no surprise that the group is deeply inspired by the ideals of freedom, and their own sound is a pure and liberated musical expression—one that truly needs to be heard to be believed.

Harriet Tubman formed in 1998 when drummer J.T. Lewis, guitarist Brandon Ross, and bassist Melvin Gibbs came together to start a band with meaning. Named after the heroic African American slave who risked her life to escape from slavery and help more than 300 others do the same, Harriet Tubman is deeply inspired by the ideals of freedom. The trio’s music examines the depths of soul, rock, jazz, and blues for their own unique liberated musical expression. The band counts Jimi Hendrix, Ornette Coleman, and Parliament-Funkadelic as contributors to its musical DNA.
