The Blind Boys of Alabama Holiday Show Featuring Ruthie Foster
One year to the originally scheduled date, we’re thrilled to welcome back this roof-raising music event! Six-time Grammy Award-winners The Blind Boys of Alabama will perform hidden gospel gems along with holiday standards and original songs. The gospel titans will be joined by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ruthie Foster, who Rolling Stone describes as “pure magic to watch and hear,” setting the tone with a transformative opening set. We missed this magical experience last season due to wildfires, but this powerful and uplifting holiday show is a spirited testament to our community’s resilience!
“The fusion of the Blind Boys’ Deep South gospel with New Orleans funk, R&B and jazz creates a superweapon of roots-music uplift.”Rolling Stone
