The Blind Boys will be joined for this performance by the world-renowned Preservation Hall Legacy Horns from New Orleans. This special concert will feature songs from the Talkin’ Christmas! album as well as the band's previous Grammy-winning Christmas recording, Go Tell It on the Mountain, along with Blind Boys' Gospel classics.

After touring in the gospel caravans of the 1940’s and 50’s, the Blind Boys have since enjoyed accolades and awards from all parts of the music world, including a remarkable five Grammy Awards, Lifetime Achievement Awards from The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), and an induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. The Blind Boys have appeared on recordings with Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Susan Tedeschi, Aaron Neville, Ben Harper, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and many other great artists.  The band has also been featured on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Grammy® Awards telecast, 60 Minutes, The Colbert Report, and were co-stars in the Broadway musical The Gospel At Colonus with Morgan Freeman.

The Blind Boys' live shows are roof-raising musical events that appeal to audiences of all cultures, as evidenced by an international itinerary that has taken them to virtually every continent.  The Blind Boys of Alabama have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 75 years and shows no signs of diminishing.

The Preservation Hall Legacy Horns represent a tradition that started in 1961, when Preservation Hall first opened in the French Quarter. This trio is comprised of some of the most revered alumni of the Hall, many of whom have toured the world with The Preservation Hall Jazz Band for decades. As the world-renowned Preservation Hall Jazz Band continues its exciting exploration of the boundaries of New Orleans jazz, the Preservation Hall Legacy Horns has formed, with the help of the non-profit Preservation Hall Foundation, to help maintain a connection with the traditional aspects of the Hall’s musical legacy.
