Cornbread Harris
Cornbread Harris
Born in 1927, James Samuel 'Cornbread' Harris Sr has certainly seen a great deal in his life. Orphaned at the age of three, Harris arrived in Minnesota at the age of 12 after bouncing around foster families to eventually live with his grandparents. In addition to his life in music and the church, Harris worked for American Hoist & Derrick for 25 years. As a pianist, a singer and a songwriter, Mr. Harris was recently recognized with a Sally Award in 2014, a Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame Legend Award in 2012 and his appearance on Minnesota's very first Rock & Roll record, Augie Garcia's 1955 hit "Hi-Yo Silver", and subsequently sharing the stage with Elvis, speaks for itself. He is also the father of celebrated producer Jimmy "Jam" Harris, best know for his work with Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.
