The Blind Boys of Alabama are an American treasure. Known for crossing multiple musical boundaries with their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material, including songs by writers such as Prince and Tom Waits, the band was recently called “a superweapon of roots-music uplift” by Rolling Stone magazine.
This holiday season, the Blind Boys are touring in support of their new album “Talkin’ Christmas!” (Sony Masterworks), their second-ever Christmas album. It also features blues legend Taj Mahal and includes several brand-new songs as well as older classics. This special concert will feature songs from the new album as well as the band’s previous Grammy-winning Christmas recording, “Go Tell It on the Mountain.”
After touring in the gospel caravans of the 1940’s and 50’s, the Blind Boys have since enjoyed accolades and awards from all parts of the music world, including a remarkable five Grammy Awards, Lifetime Achievement Awards from The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), and an induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. The Blind Boys have appeared on recordings with Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Susan Tedeschi, Aaron Neville, Ben Harper, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and many other great artists. The band has also been featured on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Grammy® Awards telecast, 60 Minutes, The Colbert Report, and were co-stars in the Broadway musical The Gospel At Colonus with Morgan Freeman.
