Blind Boys of Alabama - 30 March 2013, Bluesfest

For me at least, the Blind Boys of Alabama were one of the unexpected treats that make going to festivals worthwhile. It didn't hurt that they had a crowd that was both reverent and raucous. The band had a pretty good idea of what people wanted to hear, but still managed to play a few tracks that, at least for a casual listener like me, weren't familiar. It was great to get to hear Down in the Hole, although there were a few very weird seconds of trying to figure out what song they could possibly be playing that I would be so familiar with.

All the recordings from Bluesfest are of OK, but not super quality.

[Forgot to add the the setlist, sorry about that]

Down in the Hole (w/ Charlie Musslewhite)
