Join us for a celebration of deeply rooted Gospel music in the rich traditions of the African-American church from the deep-south, infused with blues and jazz. 

A combination of African-American spirituals, hymns, sacred songs, hand clapping, foot stomping, sad stories and uplifting verses. 

A blend of ballads and upbeat songs. Gospel and blues. These songs are personal but not private.
