About this show

Cross That River depicts the sometimes tragic, sometimes humorous life and times of Blue, a run-away slave who escapes to Texas to become one of America's first Black Cowboys. The story transports the audience to the unsettled West of the 1860's through compelling storytelling and infectious music that ranges from country and bluegrass to soul, blues and rock gospel. An entertaining and personal story of hardship and perseverance, Cross That River is ultimately about our single most precious birthright - freedom.
