Aaron Neville, a prominent figure of the New Orleans R&B scene, is heading to the Lowcountry this week for a performance at the Charleston Music Hall.
While well-known for his time with the Neville Brothers, the singer recently has begun promoting his earlier, lesser-known works. Many were originally arranged, written and produced by the late Allen Toussaint, another music legend who contributed to New Orleans-style R&B.
Neville’s solo projects have often centered on re-releasing those earlier works, but he’s also been keeping busy with new material. In 2010, he made his gospel debut with the album “I Know I’ve Been Changed.” And in 2013, he released a collection of doo-wop covers on the album “My True Story,” co-produced by Keith Richards and Don Was. Expect a mix of all these traditions at his show this week.
When: 8 p.m. Sunday
Where: 37 John St., Charleston
