Author/Artist Bio

Cornelius Eady and Rough Magic: Rough Magic is a New York-based band sprung from Cornelius Eady's desire to extend the boundaries of language expression to include original songs and those produced over many years. With the 2013 release of Eady's Book of Hooks, a two-CD and chapbook set, a group of like-minded poets-musicians-composers converged and became Rough Magic. The band calls upon troubadour traditions and evokes the sounds and storytelling of such greats as Muddy Waters and Woody Guthrie, as well as the unexpected grooves and subject matter of the Talking Heads.


Rough Magic performed with Cornelius Eady on Monday, October 5th, 2015 at 4:00 p.m.
