Corey Harris Making the blues his own By KATE COLEMAN Staff Writer Blues artist Corey Harris, who will celebrate his birthday tomorrow, has a voice that sounds bigger and wiser than his almost 28 years. His steel guitar is strongly rhythmic, and his slide makes some of the recordings sound almost like two people singing. Harris will bring his own version of traditional acoustic blues to Hagerstown Junior College's Kepler Theater Saturday night. The performance, which is being presented by Mountain Green Concerts, begins at 8. In the liner notes of his debut CD "Between Midnight and Day," Harris says he was musical "from the youngest, from the beginning," - even before he was born.

At least 18,000 people are expected to attend the fourth annual festival on June 4-6, said Karen Giffin, spokeswoman for the City of Hagerstown. [cont. from front page ] That's a jump of 2,000 visitors over last year, she said. Some 12,000 blues enthusiasts flocked to the city in 1997, and 7,000 people visited in 1996, the first year the festival was held. "It's going to be the best one ever," Blues Fest founder Carl W. Disque said.
