How it works…

Since the year, 2000,  we have led a Sunday morning Gospel Sing and Jam at bluegrass festivals. During the weekend, we encourage pickers and singers (Through MC announcements and a listing on the program schedule) to come out to an open, everyone is invited, time of Gospel singing and jamming. We gather usually in front of the stage or under the spectator tent, with all the pickers together and the crowd usually fills in the seats. The ideal time for the sing is about one hour before the regular stage show or 10AM when there is not a Sunday show at the festival (We have had crowds of up to 150 attend even when there is no Sunday stage show).  We don’t use the PA system; we don’t use the stage. We have a battery powered PA we use with larger venues. We provide a free songbook which has 15 bluegrass gospel songs in it, words and chords. These are provided to the attendees free of charge. Over the years we have developed close friendships with promoters, musicians, and fans, who have on occasion cited the “Bluegrass Gospel Sing and Jam” as their favorite part of the festival, for us a humbling indication that God is speaking to the bluegrass community through us.
