Jimmy Carter

I first discovered The Blind Boys of Alabama on the 2004 Ben Harper album, "There Will Be a Light". I am not a churchgoer but there is no resisting the way the music of The Blind Boys makes you feel. Inspired, moved–their music makes you want to do good things.

As you can tell, we're pretty excited to be welcoming the Blind Boys of Alabama to Greaves Concert Hall next month.   You can get your tickets here or by calling 1-888-428-7311.  Once that's done, you should watch this November interview of founding Blind Boy, Jimmy Carter, on Colbert Report.
