In 2011, Pryor ran a Kickstarter campaign to fund a second solo album, entitled May Day. The project was funded, and the album was released in January 2012, along with the companion album Still, There's a Light.

2/10 in a nutshell…
We had a wrap-up/celebration of the 3-band ska fest down at the recently-renamed Cause at Lyndale Lake… Secondhand Ska Kings, Umbrella Bed and The Prizefighters played to a nicely-crowded and very receptive house just hours before also getting played on the RSST, both in hour 1 and on the 4@4! Sherwood lit candles for Don Wilson (The Ventures), Bobby Monster Mash Pickett and big-bander Buddy Morrow, and we resumed discovering Caro Emerald… told ya you’d be hearing more from her! The GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month selection (Confucious) got the Josh Roseman treatment this week and heads-up, skassengers… THE TOASTERS make another Triple Rock appearance Wed. 2/16. You can be sure Rob Bucket Hingley will bring his mobile Megalith store with him, his crates are a gas to dig through, and his legendary band got some play in RSST’s 3rd hour… and another Caro Emerald gem got spun as well!

Cornbread Harris
Produced by Michelle Bruch, Daniel Zamzow & Nancy Sartor

At the age of 83, Cornbread Harris still gigs regularly in Minneapolis. Recognized for his wit, soulful blues and signature style, he’s also renowned for his famous son—music producer Jimmy “Jam” Harris, who has worked with artists including Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson and Gwen Stefani. Cornbread Harris performed on Minnesota’s first rock record 55 years ago, and his most recent album is a compilation of performances with Cadillac Kolstad, a Twin Cities rockabilly artist. The man and the music is currently the subject of a documentary titled, “Man, Blues and God – The Life of Cornbread Harris” by Thomas Zocher.

A fundraiser for the documentary film about Cornbread Harris takes place Sunday, Feb 13, from 7-11pm at Wilebski’s Blues Saloon, 1638 Rice Street, St. Paul. For more information, visit wilebskisblues.com and click on the calendar page.

Producer Michelle Bruch offers a short profile of Cornbread, followed by a concert performance recorded live at the 331 Club by Daniel Zamzow. Production assistance by Nancy Sartor.
