Fulton Blues is named after a district in Richmond, Va., that was once home to a large number of the city’s middle class African-American families. In the 1960’s Fulton had fallen on hard times, its scenic views of the James River and easy access to downtown made it a target for urban renewal as it was euphemistically called in the Virginia Statehouse.

The residents of Fulton were evicted and the neighbourhood was destroyed. When Corey Harris moved to Richmond a few years ago he learnt of its history and set to work on writing his latest collection to pay tribute to this Southern neighbourhood with a particularly haunted past.
