With a career that spans 70 years, the five-time Grammy® Award-winning Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. They defined the sound of the American south and continue to innovate today, traversing musical boundaries with remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel to contemporary songs. This illustrious group makes its Penn Live Arts debut, performing music from its capstone album, Almost Home, as well as favorites from across the decades. "Seeing the Blind Boys of Alabama in concert is part living history, part concert, all uplifting experience.” (The Washington Post)
