Mighty Sparrow to perform at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts


Mighty Sparrow

Light a candle and hold it up as the Trinidadian Calypso King and inimitable vocalist and storyteller Mighty Sparrow (OBE) brings the Caribbean Island fire to Lincoln Center for a career-spanning set of songs on the eve of his 86th birthday.

Mighty Sparrow’s legacy spans nearly the entire history of recordings, from 78s to digital downloads, and his standing in 20th century music ranks alongside the greats of his generation. The preeminent calypsonian’s first performance in America since 2019 will include a selection of his greatest hits from a songwriting catalogue of over 600 tracks and more than 80 albums, including such Carnival classics as “Jean and Dinah,” “Sparrow Dead,” and “Mr. Walker.” For calypso fans both young and old, this promises to be the summer’s must-see concert.
