Yesterday, Mark and I walked through St. John's Cathedral in downtown Knoxville. Why? Because on Good Friday (April 22) at 8:00pm we will be there performing 'Easter: Stories and Songs'.
It is gorgeous, as you can see from the picture above.
We performed 'Easter: Stories and Songs' (which you can read more about HERE) at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens last year and it was an unbelievably beautiful night. This year we wanted to move locations to a place that was equally beautiful...but indoors. St. John's was the first place we thought of. We contacted them and they were gracious enough to allow us to use their Cathedral. Such amazing people at St. John's.
The band will again be comprised of my good friends, who also happen to be some of the best musicians I know:
drums - Terry Mahnken
accessory percussion - Taylor Brown
bass - Carl Smith
acoustic/dobro/vox - Chris Dorsten
mandolin/vox - Emilee Cook
piano/hammered dulcimer/accordion/penny whistle/etc. - Adam Whipple
organ/piano - Greg Adkins
upright bass - Matthew Nelson
cello - Rich Brinke
We will even have a guest vocalist, a friend of Betsy and I's, who is extremely busy with her own music, Jill Andrews.
So, for all those who live in Knoxville...you should come downtown and celebrate the Easter story with us on Good Friday.
(And for those of you who live in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio. We are actually going to be traveling next weekend...April 14-17th...through those states performing at various churches. Click HERE for dates and locations.)
at 5:00 PM
