Winners of five Grammy Awards, The Blind Boys of Alabama are living legends who continue setting the standard for gospel music. Coming of musical age while touring the South during the Jim Crow era, the Blind Boys developed a unique sound blending the close harmonies of early jubilee gospel with the charismatic tradition’s fervent improvisations.
With a sound that “remains rich and timeless” (The New York Times), a Blind Boys live show is a roof-raising musical event that crosses musical boundaries with remarkable interpretations of traditional gospel favorites, contemporary spirituals and hard-working rhythm and blues.
