But if you had a bad run-in with a cappella during college, dont worry. Sweet Honey in the Rock doesnt do bubbly renditions of Hanson while wearing blue blazers and penny loafers. They will however mix in some Bob Marley, Negro spirituals, blues, and, for this concert, some holiday-themed material, and all of their renditionsoriginals and coverscut right to the heart of the matter. This is music the way music began: as simple songs of praise by, for, and about human beings. Tickets start at $30. Bring the whole family.
