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…

The Mark Trammell Quartet in Silva

I think we can agree that the best way to start a new year is with Gospel Music. Surprisingly, when 2018 rolled around, I didn’t have to wait long to find a concert to attend.  In fact, I only had to wait five days.  That’s quite unusual for Missouri.  We’re known for having ice that…

Greater Vision – Burlington, NC

New Hope Baptist Church is known for being the starting place of the Burlington Revival – a three month revival with Evangelist C.T. Townsend that took place two years ago…which people are still talking about.  In addition, fans of Gospel music will recognize Burlington as the hometown of Greater Vision’s tenor, Chris Allman.  But, the…

Tribute Quartet – Maiden, NC

Tis the season…for concerts on the East Coast!  Last weekend I was in Alabama for Pat Barker’s “One Night Only” concert and this weekend I found myself in South Carolina for Abraham Productions’ “Girls and Guitars Tour.”  However…there just happened to be a concert the night before in Maiden, North Carolina with Tribute Quartet.  What…

Memorial Day at Indian Creek – Thursday Night

American flags lined the top of the tent and gently waved with the cool breeze.  At the top of the hill, golf carts and ATVs idled in the parking lot, waiting to transport fans of Gospel music to the tent below. As you walked by the Snack Shack, you could smell the aroma of good…

Southern Gospel Picnic – Pat Barker and The Martins

A sunny sky, a light breeze, Gospel Music and the Ozark hills – combined, they are the making of a perfect summer day.  Thursday night in Echo Hollow fell under that category, the weather was perfect.  Clouds sheltered us from the oppressive heat of the sun and a breeze wafted our way, ah…September had arrived. …

Southern Gospel Picnic – Mark Bishop and Legacy Five

“Mark Bishop has been known down through the years for great Gospel Music,” said Duane Garren, emcee for Echo Hollow.  “You keep asking for him and we keep bringing him back – Mark Bishop!”  Mark walked on stage and kicked off Wednesday night at the Southern Gospel Picnic with his #1 song, Listening For The…
