A Gospel Baptismal

A Gospel Baptismal
A Gospel Baptismal

Dave Stroud will explore the gospel form, both African American and Country, focusing on the theme of ‘going to the water’ to be saved. The songs reflect the celebration of ‘washing the soul’ as a tradition of a Christian faith. The performers will include Da Costa Woltz, Clefs of Harmony, Dock Walsh, and Ernest Stoneman’s Dixie Mountaineers. There will also be a helping of passionate sermons to make sure we keep our paths straight.
