Dr. John & The Blind Boys of Alabama

Jazz pioneer Dr. John is joined by gospel’s legendary The Blind Boys of Alabama for a majestic show that explores the connections between blues, jazz and gospel. Under Dr. John’s musical direction, "Spirituals to Funk" represents the first-ever touring partnership between the two icons of American music.

 

Based on the legendary Carnegie Hall ‘Spirituals to Swing’ concerts produced by John Hammond in the 1930s, the Rock & Roll Hall of famer and 5-time Grammy Award winners will perform together as they 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 CD celebrating Louis Armstrong’s 100th birthday.
