The Blackwood Quartet

The Coffee County Arts Alliance will present The Blackwood Quartet on Thursday, Sept. 22, at the Enterprise High School Performing Arts Center. The performance was originally scheduled for Elba High School but technical problems caused the concert to change venues.

The Blackwood Quartet continues the gospel sound made famous by The Blackwood Brothers Quartet of 1934, which is considered the First Family of Gospel Music. The Blackwood Brothers won eight Grammys and six Dove Awards and were inducted in the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1998. Mark Blackwood has held on to the tradition and sound that has made the Blackwood name world famous today. Expect to hear songs such as “How Great Thou Art,” “Swing Down Sweet Chariot,” “I’ll Fly Away,” “Peace in the Valley” and “When the Saints Go Marching In”.

Tickets are available at The Brick Pub & Pizzeria, The Olive Fruit and Yancey Parker’s, all in Enterprise. Individual ticket prices purchased in advance are $35 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets purchased the day of the event are $40 for adults and $10 for students.
