About this show

The product of a collaboration between Lincoln Center Festival and the Mayfield estate, this one-night-only event pays tribute to the late Curtis Mayfield, whose music served as a soundtrack to the civil rights movement, introducing poetry and moral affirmation into pop, soul, funk, and R&B. A roster of special guest artists from across decades and styles joins The Impressions, the inimitable vocal soul group Mayfield led early in his career, along with a house band led by Binky Griptite, the guitarist and musical director of the funk-infused Dap-Kings.
