The Mighty Sparrow, known as the Calypso King of the World, is a vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist, and a veritable living legend. A prolific songwriter, he has written over 600 songs and recorded over 60 albums and has been recognized by such songwriters as Bob Dylan and Van Dyke Parks for his genius as a wordsmith. With a legacy that spans recorded history from 78s to digital downloads, his importance to the second half of twentieth-century music stands alongside Bob Marley, Brian Wilson, James Brown, and Frank Sinatra. Since his early hits “Jean and Dinah” (1956) and “Carnival Boycott” (1957), the Grenada-born singer has balanced romance and politics, carrying the torch for Trinidadian Calypso for over six decades. For this very special evening at the Atrium, The Mighty Sparrow will play an intimate acoustic set that explores his artistry and personal history.
