Tuesday night the Old Rock House hosted a seated show which featured the Blind Boys of Alabama.

The legendary gospel group came out dressed in dapper suits and put on a performance that was soulful throughout and slowly built up to an all out get down, with nearly everyone shaking a tail feather by the encore. With a more youthful backing band, the veterans of the group still have beautifully strong voices that shake walls and melt honey all at once. 

Joining them on stage throughout the set were the openers, Sara and Sean Watkins. The brother and sister duo, who are known from their time with Nickel Creek, play a beautiful blend of music that at times is folk like and at others has hints of their take on bluegrass.  Although their opening set seemed a bit short, the Watkins siblings showcased their fine musicianship, and also added a very nice element when joining the Blind Boys of Alabama on stage.
