I have a story on today’s episode of Metro Connection about Donald Tillery, a DC music legend who played with the Soul Searchers for 15 years. He’s a fascinating man, and I hope I’ll be writing about him again at much greater length this year. You can hear the piece here.
My thanks to DC music historians Eli Meir Kaplan and Kevin Coombes. Eli suggested the story, and Kevin provided insight as well as the promo shot of the Soul Searchers. Eli profiles figures from the city’s soul scene on his blog, Soul 51. Kevin’s site, DC Soul Recordings, is also indispensable.
