Ruthie Foster: Grammy-Nominated Blues Powerhouse
Roswell Cultural Arts Center (Roswell, GA) – Sat, Feb 7 @ 8:00pm
Known for her smooth blend of R&B, soul, roots rock and gospel, singer-songwriter Ruthie Foster doesn't have a whole lot to be singing the blues about, not with the success she's had over the past few years.

The Blind Boys of Alabama: Soul-Gospel Group
Centre for Performing Arts of Coweta County (Newnan, GA) – Sun, Mar 15 @ 3:00pm
The Blind Boys of Alabama, six-time Grammy winners (including a Lifetime Achievement Award) are one of the South's most storied and influential vocal groups. First formed in 1939, they've performed together for over 70 years, melding classic gospel with authentic soul music.
