Saturday, April 28, 2018 • 8 PM
Mission Temple Fireworks Revival features Southern raconteur Paul Thorn and his crack band, PLUS five-time Grammy® Award and Grammy Lifetime Award winner The Blind Boys of Alabama and gospel singing quartet The McCrary Sisters. These critically-acclaimed artists come together with a special blend of soul, rock, gospel, blues, and country that creates a wide-ranging, funky show that will have the audience up and stamping their feet. The one-of-a-kind experience will be, as Paul Thorn says, “like taking a 6-pack to church!”
About Paul Thorn
Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music: bluesy, rocking, and thoroughly Southern American. Thorn has rambled down back roads and jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, and performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine. He’s also appeared on major television shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts.
About The Blind Boys of Alabama
The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. Celebrated with Lifetime Achievement Awards by the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and winners of five Grammy® Awards, they have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 70 years.
About The McCrary Sisters
For The McCrary Sisters (Ann, Deborah, Regina, and Alfreda), music is a birthright, a lifelong love affair, and occasionally, a cross to bear. The sisters have released three studio albums and been part of numerous all-star house bands on broadcast shows including the Americana Music Honors & Awards, PBS’ “Salute to Troops” at the White House, Grammy Legends, and the CMA Awards.
