Blind Boys of Alabama in Bearsville

The legendary group The Blind Boys of Alabama is coming to the Bearsville Theater, 291 Tinker St., Bearsville, Saturday at 9 p.m.

Tickets are $48 reserved, $33 at the door.

Check out some sounds from the Boys at their Web site, which includes tracks from their upcoming album, "Down in New Orleans."
The album, which hits stores Jan. 29, gets a review in Preview on Friday.
Opening for them is Bret Mosley, whose latest album, "Light & Blood," was released by the label Woodstock MusicWorks in December. Freeman reviewer David Malachowski said "the whole album is like a hot summer night."

Hot, indeed.

As always, all the parties involved in this post -- The Blind Boys of Alabama, Bret Mosley, David Malachowski, yours truly and even the Bearsville Theater -- are on MySpace.
