Schrott Center - 610 West 46th St.

Blind-Boys1Come for their first joint appearance in Indianapolis! Members of Blind Boys of Alabama first sang together at the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind in Talladega in the late 1930s. Nearly 75 years after they hit their first notes together, Blind Boys of Alabama are not only known for their longevity in the industry, but for the breadth of their catalog and their relevance to contemporary roots music. Since 2000, Blind Boys of Alabama have won five Grammys and four Gospel Music Awards, and have delivered their spiritual message to countless listeners. My Brightest Diamond mixes elements of opera, cabaret, chamber music, and rock, and is the project of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shara Worden. Worden had the distinct pleasure of singing the title track to the latest offering of the Blind Boys of Alabama. The song, “I’ll Find A Way (To Carry It All),” was written by Detroit-native Ted Lucas. 

Adults $40-$25 / Seniors and Students $25-$15
