Sign Interpreted Performance

"Spirituals to Funk" features Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Dr. John and 5-time Grammy® Award Winners, The Blind Boys of Alabama. Under Dr. John’s musical direction, the world premiere of "Spirituals to Funk" represents the first-ever touring partnership between two icons of American music. Dr. John and the Blind Boys of Alabama's performance will build on a legacy that started with Dr. John’s appearance on the Blind Boys’ Grammy® Award-winning CD “Down in New Orleans,” and continues with the Blind Boys’ appearance on Dr. John’s upcoming CD celebrating Louis Armstrong’s 100th birthday.

Based on the legendary Carnegie Hall Spirituals to Swing concerts produced by John Hammond in the 1930s, "Spirituals to Funk" features an integrated show that explores the connections between jazz, blues and gospel.
