Having formed in 1939 at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind, acclaimed gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama must be as surprised as anyone at their longevity and success, the latter of which has bloomed into the 21st century. The Boys have landed numerous Grammys, been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and have made beautiful music with the likes of Lou Reed, Asleep at the Wheel, Tom Petty and Prince. Despite some attrition in their lineup these past few years, the band continues to tour, bringing their rousing southern soul to audiences nationwide. The Blind Boys of Alabama’s “Unbroken Circle Tour,” with Dr. Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys, hits Hult Center Thursday, Oct. 7; tickets at www.theshedd.org or 434-7000, $26-$39.
