June 19th is just around the corner and I wanted to invite you to my annual Juneteenth Concert Celebration at Joe’s Pub in NYC.  This concert is part of Toshi Reagon’s GoodFolk series at the Pub and this year I am sharing the bill with the supremely gifted singer-songwriter-pianist Tariq Al-Sabir.

The program will include everything from classical music by African-American composers to new soul by Tariq.  We’ve put a lot of energy and love into this project and can’t wait to share it with you!  Inspired by June 19th, 1865, the day that Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas to spread word of freedom as granted in the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863, we are celebrating all the forms that black music-making takes, reveling in the redemptive power of the creative spirit.  Come joins us for what promises to be a glorious evening.
