Tribute Quartet in Willow Springs, Missouri

Last week, I had the opportunity to see Tribute Quartet at the First General Baptist Church in Willow Springs, Missouri on Friday night.  I don’t know about you, but a Gospel concert is always a good way to start a weekend, and luckily, I didn’t have to go far to find one. The evening kicked…

Mark Trammell Quartet in Hazelwood, MO

Last Saturday, I was grateful for a sunny drive on my way to a concert in the St. Louis area.  A few trees were even turning yellow and red along the highway; so peaceful compared to our last concert in St. Louis. (During the summer, we went to a concert and all ended up hiding…

NQC 2018 | Tuesday

From the first time I saw his name appear on the NQC schedule, I couldn’t wait until the Tuesday morning Chapel Service.  So, when my alarm went off that morning, I didn’t hesitate to get up, enjoy a cup of tea on the cabin’s back porch and get ready for the day. A few hours…

NQC 2018 | Monday

Going to Pigeon Forge for the National Quartet Convention (NQC) is like going home for me.  After ten years of attending, it’s still one of my favorite times of the year and I always look forward to seeing what special showcases and programs the NQC will come up with for the week. This year, Monday…

Memorial Day Weekend – Saturday Night at the Tent

Memorial Day Weekend came to a close at Indian Creek Baptist Church with three great artists on Saturday night – Gold City, Tim Lovelace and Triumphant Quartet.  Once again, we were blessed by hearing from one of the campers as the evening began.

If you miss lunch on purpose so you can eat at the “food shack,” you might be in Carnesville, Georgia over Memorial Day Weekend.  Indian Creek Baptist Church hosts a three day Gospel sing and one of the things they’re known for is their cooking! In front of the tent is what we affectionately call…

Memorial Day Weekend – Thursday Night at the Tent

If you’ve been attending an event so long you can’t remember what year you started going, I guess that makes it a tradition, right?  Because that’s the case when Memorial Day Weekend comes around – I know I’ll be in Carnesville, Georgia at the Indian Creek Memorial Day Weekend Gospel Singing.  Not only does Indian…

Hymn Sing Taping at Indian Trail Baptist Church

Shuttle buses maneuvered through the parking lot to let folks off at the church doors while guys in neon yellow vests directed even more cars to various areas of the lot.  I stood watching from inside the church windows and thought, “Where are they putting all of those cars?” Just that morning, my friend and…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Friday

It’s the last day of a cruise, how do you spend your time?  Plan every hour down to the minute and pack in as much as you can?  Find a chair on deck and relax? I’ve found that the answer varies from cruise to cruise, and this year, I took a more relaxed pace on…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Thursday

Thursday morning, my alarm went off at an ungodly hour.  The only thing that kept me from hitting the snooze button was three excursion tickets to Chichen Itza predominantly displayed on the counter in front of the mirror.  Now that was worth getting up for… Unfortunately, the Windjammer wasn’t open at 6:00 am to eat…
