Latest news » Blind Boys Head South By Southwest
After performing together for over 60 years, there aren't many gigs The Blind Boys of Alabama haven't played, but these soulful septuagenarians - fresh off a fourth consecutive Grammy win and Grammy telecast performance with Kanye West and John Legend - will make their South by Southwest debut this year, with a March 18 performance at the Austin Music Hall. With Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples and Amos Lee joining the bill, this promises to be the roots music event of SXSW '05.
The Blind Boys will also preview their March 18 SXSW showcase with a 1:30PM in-store performance that same day at Austin's Waterloo Records.
Following their SXSW appearance The Blind Boys will also make stops in Boston (3/26) and Ann Arbor (4/4 & 4/5) along with several dates with the legendary Charlie Musselwhite - who is also featured on their forthcoming album - in Philadelphia (3/29), New York (3/31), Ridgefield, CT (4/1), and Washington, DC (4/2)
