Neville brings back New Orleans R&B
Sunday, June 18, 2017 | James Rouse Theatre | One Performance Only
“The sweetest falsetto in human history.”
– Rolling Stone
No one else sounds like Aaron Neville. His falsetto is instantly recognizable, whether in the second line jazz and funk of his beloved New Orleans as one of the Neville Brothers or in his GRAMMY-winning duets with Linda Ronstadt. “He’s the most soulful of singers, maybe in all of recorded history,” said avowed fan Bob Dylan: “If angels sing, they must sing in that voice.” Fifty years after his breakout single, the soul classic Tell It Like It Is, he is an essential American artist.
Aaron Neville returns to the Columbia Festival of the Arts with longtime pianist Michael Goods for an evening of songs and stories. He last appeared at the 2005 Festival with the Neville Brothers. Aaron will sing his favorite classics from rhythm and blues, soul, and even the street-corner doo-wop of his youth. This stripped-down encounter in the intimate setting of the Jim Rouse Theatre will show off both the songs he loves and his famously expressive voice, an unmatched instrument in American music.
For the safety of the artists and for the comfort of the audience, the use of cameras and other recording devices is not permitted in the theatre during the performance.
Seating is limited so purchase your tickets now for this unique opportunity to hear one of the most recognizable voices in American music.
