Spirituals to Funk features Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dr. John with a four-piece band and five-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. Based on the legendary Carnegie Hall From Spirituals to Swing concerts produced by John Hammond in the 1930′s, Spirituals to Funk features an integrated show that explores the connections between jazz, blues, and gospel. Dr. John and the Blind Boys of Alabama’s partnership builds on a legacy that began 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. Special guest instrumentalist to be announced.
