The Blind Boys of Alabama & The Dirty Dozen Brass Band

  • Tarrytown Music Hall 13 Main Street Tarrytown, NY, 10591 United States (map)

Gospel icons The Blind Boys of Alabama join together with the Crescent City’s preeminent brass band pioneers The Dirty Dozen Brass Band for a joyous night of Southern spiritual music and New Orleans rhythms. Featuring individual band performances, as well as on-stage collaborations, the DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE tour finds these two legendary artists sharing the stage for the first time. The Dozen return to their roots with material that inspired their 10th album Funeral For A Friend – a deeply spiritual homage to the New Orleans jazz funeral, while the Blind Boys re-visit traditional selections from their 2009 Grammy winning CD Down In New Orleans. The result is a soulful and uplifting meeting of jazz and gospel, from the stirring rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’ to the roof raising favorites ‘I’ll Fly Away’ and, of course, ‘Down By The Riverside’.
