Singing the Gospel for over 75 years

The Best-Known Name in Gospel Music History Blackwood Brothers

The Blackwood Brothers Quartet was formed in 1934 with brothers Roy, Doyle, James and Roy's, son R.W. That heritage of gospel music is carried on today as James' sons Jimmy and Billy along with tenor Wayne Little, bass Randy Byrd and pianist Mike Hammontree present a modern-day version of that great quartet.

And the music began.100_0755

At intermission, Billy walked by us sitting on the folding chairs at the back of the auditorium.  All the other pictures I took using the zoom feature on my camera.100_0781

The concert was great and we ended our afternoon with dinner at Cracker Barrel.  We got stuck on the freeway for about twenty minutes, but we spent that time visiting with Ralph and Jeanelle.  Thanks, sweet friends, for a wonderful afternoon of music, fellowship and food.
