Marc Cohn and The Blind Boys of Alabama at MSU Riley Center

Thursday, May 17, 2018 - 7:30 pm

American music. That’s what Marc Cohn and The Blind Boys of Alabama create. Cohn shot to fame in 1991 with the bluesy, soulful "Walking in Memphis." The song describes his visit to the city of blues pioneer W.C. Handy, rock 'n' roll king Elvis Presley and soul legend Al Green, all mentioned in the lyrics. The Blind Boys began singing together in 1939, and founding member Jimmy Carter still tours with the group. Through the decades, they have remained faithful to their passionate style of gospel music, which springs – like Cohn's very personal songs of poignancy and inspiration – straight from the heart.
