Full Sail – Mark Trammell Quartet

When was the last time you faced a storm in life?  Something that tossed you to and fro in the turbulent waves…  Something that made you look up to find a ray of sunshine through the clouds…  Something that made you wonder if the Captain abandoned your ship?  Do you remember what it felt like…

Hymns In The Morning

There are many ways one could spend the first hours of the day on the 4th of July, especially in Gatlinburg…there are trails to hike, mountains to climb and tasty restaurants to sample; but when you’re at a Gospel Sing, there’s only one thing on your mind – music.  This year, I spent the early…

NQC’s Eighth Day

Who said NQC wasn’t an eight day sing?  Not the one who packed up on Saturday morning to be in Murfreesboro, TN that evening for a Mark Trammell Quartet concert!  Those of you who live far enough away from NQC that driving in requires more than one day, you know what I’m talking about!  First…

Your Walk Talks Blog Tour – stop #3

I can still remember the first time I sat in an auditorium and watched Mark Trammell sing.  It was back in the mid 2000’s before the “Mark Trammell Trio” morphed into the Mark Trammell Quartet.  As usual, it was pouring down rain outside.  (Somehow it always rains during this particular concert that’s an annual event…

Paris, Quartets and Christmas

When I think of going to Paris; images of the Eiffel Tower, beautiful gardens and the Seine River flash through my mind.  The City of Lights.  Instead, the Tennessee hills rolled by my window as we drove into a small town all decorated for Christmas.  I smiled as we passed a mini Eiffel Tower made…
