The Blind Boys of Alabama
Long-running gospel singers the Blind Boys of Alabama (since 1939!) begin a three-night run at Lincoln Center tonight. Their latest release is titled Duets, and they promise each program will be different. That won't be hard, though, since the first night features a host of indie-rock support groups, including Yo La Tengo, Lambchop and Exene Cervenka, among others. The rest of the week finds them playing with the likes of man-of-constant-sorrow Ralph Stanley, Yonder Mountain String Band, Aaron Neville and more.
