Blind Boys of Alabama, John Dee Holeman 

When: Sat., Nov. 6, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $27.50

Formed in 1939, gospel music icons the Blind Boys of Alabama have been around so long that even septuagenarian, and veteran member, Jimmy Carter has barely experienced it all. Along the way, the Blind Boys have collaborated with a broad array of secular pop artists and held a four-year stranglehold on the traditional gospel Grammy, all thanks to rich, spirit-fed harmonies that are unmatched in the secular realm. A living legend in his own right, Durham bluesman John Dee Holeman soothes the soul with pipes and relaxed fingerpicking that mines both the Delta and Piedmont traditions. —Spencer Griffith
