    A Blind Boys of Alabama Christmas show is a roof-raising celebration of the season!

    The Blind Boys of Alabama are both living legends and modern day innovators. From humble beginnings, the group has borrowed from old musical traditions to forge a new gospel sound for the 21st century, collaborating with artists like Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), Patty Griffin, and Taj Mahal.

    The original members first harmonized together as youth at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the 1930s, toured the American South during the Jim Crow era, and sang at benefits for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Through it all, the Blind Boys have endured and flourished thanks to their visionary sound and incredible blended harmonies.

    This holiday concert will feature gospel standards and new holiday songs from their “Talkin’ Christmas!” and “Go Tell it on the Mountain” albums. Along for the ride is dynamic gospel-soul singer Liz Vice, who will perform an opening set. Her gospel, soul and R&B infused songs celebrate her deep-rooted spirituality.
