Nina Simone’s Daughter to Perform Tribute to Her Mother

A live concert tribute to Nina Simone will take place at New York City’s Town Hall on April 21, the three-year anniversary of her death.

The concert is a tribute to Nina Simone’s legendary career, particularly her performance at the Town Hall in 1959. Her daughter, Simone, will perform songs from the original performance, as well as new arrangements of Nina Simone classics. Simone will collaborate with Al Schackman and the original Nina Simone Band to pay tribute to her mother.

On April 20, Nina Simone’s former husband, Andy Stroud, will dedicate a book of personal photographs called The Life, Times and Legend of Nina Simone Revealed at Harlem’s Schomburg Center.

Tickets for the tribute are $37.50 and $32.50 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster or the Town Hall Box Office or by calling (212) 840-2824.
