TCB Rock and Roll Legends
Martha Cohen Theatre
The Blackwood family is the first family of Gospel Music, winning 8 Grammy Awards, 27 Dove Awards and have sold over 60 million albums. They have performed in 47 countries and have been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Millions were privileged to hear the Blackwood Brothers sing in the Johnny Cash movie "Walk the Line".
Elvis idolized the Blackwood family and wanted to sing with them.He was given that opportunity after the crash that killed RW Blackwood but Elvis had already signed a contract with Sun Records so was unable to sing with them. He insisted the Blackwood Brothers sing at his mother's funeral and they later sang at Elvis' own funeral.
Millions still love and adore Elvis' music today so the Blackwood Quartet is keeping his gospel music memory alive with this beautiful "The Gospel Side of Elvis" concert. They are very pleased to have award winning Elvis Tribute Artist Roger Anderson from Seattle joining them on this tour.

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
