DR. JOHN & THE LOWER 911 WITH THE BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA
Thursday, November 8, 7:30PM, Concert Hall
Be ready to be on your feet and making a joyful noise when Dr. John & The Lower 911 with The Blind Boys of Alabama bring a touch of New Orleans to Amherst with a program of “Spirituals to Funk.” Under the direction of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dr. John, the world premiere of Spirituals to Funk represents the first-ever touring partnership between two icons of American music. Dr. John & The Lower 911 and The Blind Boys of Alabama will build on this legacy synonymous with their “Big Easy” style. Based on the legendary Carnegie Hall concerts produced by John Hammond in the 1930s, this version of Spirituals to Swing features an integrated show that explores the connections between gospel, blues, and jazz. We don’t need to say anything else except get your tickets early!
