Ringing in the season with soulful holiday cheer, Grammy Award-winner Aaron Neville brings his angelic falsetto to Christmas carols and R&B favorites as well as play a host of his greatest hits and some songs from his newest albums, My True Story and Apache, at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (The Center) on Saturday, December 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets for Christmas with Aaron Neville range in price from $49-$69 and are available now  online at lutherburbankcenter.org, by calling 707-546-3600 or at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts ticket office (50 Mark West Springs Road in Santa Rosa).

Aaron Neville’s latest works with My True Story and Apache represent a culmination of his incredible career, which has seen him move seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music, the Neville Brothers. His first hit single was the landmark “Tell It Like It Is,” which held the Number One spot on the R&B charts for five weeks in 1967. He went on to win Grammy Awards for his triple-platinum 1989 collaboration with Linda Ronstadt Cry Like a Rainstorm, Howl Like the Wind, and reached the Country charts with the title track of 1993’s The Grand Tour. A member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, his most recent projects prior to Apache and My True story is the gospel album I Know I’ve Been Changed in 2010.

Christmas with Aaron Neville this December at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts will feature many of his greatest hits and showcase his wide range of gospel and holiday works including songs from Aaron Neville’s Soulful Christmas and Christmas Prayer.  Neville no longer lives in New Orleans, moving to New York after Hurricane Katrina— “from the Big Easy to the Big Apple,” as he puts it. He bought a farm upstate, and although he’s hardly lazy when it comes to touring, “… now, I don’t have to be out there grinding as much,” he says. “I needed time off to be with family and just live, instead of giving it all to the road. That was a hard gig, with the brothers. There wasn’t nobody fighting or anything like that. But I’ve got a lot more I want to do in my life. As I say, I’ve got a long ways to go and a short time to make it in!”
