Spirituals & Stories with Johnny Nichols, Jr.

Dating as far back as the early 1600's, spirituals are said to be some of America's original folk songs.

Though spirituals now have a legitimate place under the umbrella of classical music, this style of music is celebrated from instrumental and vocal ensembles to solo and piano - no matter the ethnic or racial background.

Johnny Nichols, Jr., accompanied by former Revels music director Megan Henderson on piano, takes us on a journey of spirituals, arranged by H.T Burleigh and Moses Hogan, that are unique and special to his cultural heritage as well as his personal upbringing.

Join us for this first Musical Connections presentation as Johnny passionately sings and shares short stories that connect these songs to his family and experiences growing up in rural Louisiana.

The #RevelsConnects Musical Connections series is sponsored in part by a grant from The Ithaka Foundation.
