Blind Boys Host Lincoln Center Concert Series

Tonight is the second night of a three-night concert series curated by The Blind Boys of Alabama.

The second concert spotlights country music with Yonder Mountain String Band, Texas Swing sensations Ray Benson and Jason Roberts of Asleep at the Wheel, and bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley performing songs from The Blind Boy's upcoming CD. The final evening, The Blind Boys Family Revival, will feature songs from all of the group's Grammy Award-winning albums and include duets with Aaron Neville, Joan Osborne, Hot 8 Brass Band, Dan Zanes, John Hammond, Charlie Musselwhite, and others to be announced at a later date.
