Dec. 14: The Blind Boys of Alabama at the Uptown Theatre


It’s the most wonderful time of the year—for those of a Christian faith. What of the nonbelievers, the agnostics, the atheists? How to square an absolute disbelief in God with all the festive merriment over the birth of Jesus in songs like “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night”? Do we have to content ourselves with, like, Jeff Foxworthy’s Christmas album? Enter the Blind Boys of Alabama, who manage to sing gospel classics and Christmas standbys with such fervor that even the most ardent atheist usually capitulates and feels the spirit. The Blind Boys bring their Christmas show to town on Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 7pm. $40. 707.259.0123.
