Bluegrass Gospel

Postby mortensen » Tue Dec 09, 2008 2:35 pm

I did a search on the internet for Bluegrass Gospel and ran across this song, 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken', which is one of my favorites. Fortunately, I clicked onto this site and what a suprise. I felt my heart being tuged and bacame overwhelmed with joy. What a tremendous performance by these Christians!

This group that performed this song, 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken', is called 'Transatlantic Sessions'. They are a Christian group that performs Country Blue Grass and Celtic music.
If Country and Country Bluegrass have any European influence it may be a touch of Irish Folk music. The Instrumentation is close with the exception of the Banjo which came to America from Africaand was not available in Ireland back then. Also, the Irish Folk Music will usually have a few wind instruments in it.

The Irish music was great, I think Larry Whitson should start a COFA Irish dancing group, he is a great tap dancer, you should have seen him at the one hunt we had, he was on the tables dancing away after we ate dinner, my he was good, and he sings in an Irish tenor voice as well. His rendition of Danny Boy is real good, just ask the guys who camped right next to us. Larry could be heard singing as he kept taking his cough medicine.

The group I'm playing with now, Mountain Holler does a lot of bluegrass gospel - check out our website where you'll find several gospel numbers done in a traditional bluegrass style.
