Horn Man: The Life and Musical Legacy of Charles Neville

Horn Man The Life and Musical Legacy of Charles Neville

Springfield Museums
Opens June 19

Known onstage as “Charlie the horn man,” R&B and jazz musician Charles Neville was born in 1938 in New Orleans. Charles and his siblings formed the Neville Brothers, later best-known for songs which combined social consciousness with an upbeat spirit.  In the 1990s, Charles moved to western  Massachusetts with his wife Kristin Neville and children. Charles passed away in April, 2018. The Wood Museum has worked with Kristin Neville to celebrate Charles Neville’s life and musical legacy through an exhibition of personal mementos, musical instruments, photographs, and, of course, his music.
