God Had A Hand In It

After seeing Tribute in Ohio on Friday night, we drove back to our hotel and tried to get some sleep for all the adventures that awaited us on Saturday.  What would those adventurous undertakings be?  Hmmm, let me give you a hint – one has to do with a concert and another with where the…

Fairfield, Fried Baloney and Flower Pots

If you have been following my Facebook and/or Twitter account, you’ll know that my family and I just arrived home from our vacation. In two weeks, we passed through eight states, drove over 2,500 miles, visited family, the Creation Museum, Gettysburg, a conference, saw the moonbow at Cumberland Falls, and of course, a Southern Gospel…

Part Two – Jubilee Concert

Greater Vision was the last group to perform before the intermission and kicked off their set with a well-loved number, He’d Still Been God.  As the song ended Gerald’s eyes lit up and he let out a whoop!  Then he hit the next track – a medley of hymns with the theme “redeemed.”  (Since I…

Tin-Ears, Macho Men, Barley Tones and a Lone Bass Singer…

After a trek to Nebraska on Wednesday I found myself driving to another concert that very Saturday, only this one took me in the opposite direction – Tennessee!  That weekend was the much anticipated “Jubilee 3” tour with Greater Vision, Legacy Five and the Booth Brothers.  I was privileged to be able to attend one…

Two Quartets – One Stage – One Cause

My travels in Southern Gospel Music have taken me to many places across the nation.  Every now and then, I get to go somewhere new!  That’s exactly where I went for this next concert review – somewhere new…   Yep!  For the very first time in my life I went to the state of Nebraska…

A “Joy Ride” With Ivan Parker

Just when you think you’ve found all of the “golden concert nuggets” that are hidden in your area of the world – you travel a little farther down the road and find another one!  That’s just what happened with this next venue.  Over in the bootheel, in a little town called Miner, a face very…

First Of Many – BFA

Nestled among the Ozark hills sits an old theatre in Steelville, Missouri, called the Meramec Theatre.  Though a casual driver weaving through the curvy roads would take little notice of it, fans of Southern Gospel Music look upon the building as a place where their favorite artists come to sing about the Gospel of Jesus…

Back From The West – Tribute Quartet

One of my favorite things about attending concerts are the annual events – concerts that take place every year with the same artist, at the same place, and sometimes even at the same time of year.  So, I guess you know what kind of review this is? – If you said an annual concert, you…

A Leprechaun At Praisefest!

The last morning of Praisefest fell on Saint Patrick’s Day…well, I couldn’t let that opportunity pass by, eh? So, I dressed up like a Leprechaun! Green skirt, tights, shirt, hat and hair! Definitely different from my normal concert attire! LOL! As you can imagine, there were some curious looks cast my way and more than…
