Lift Me Up! Masters of American Gospel: Special Event
Jan 19, 2019 at 7:30 pm
The roof-raising sounds of traditional American gospel are celebrated in commanding, spirit-filled performances by two sensational grassroots ensembles that demonstrate both the diversity of expression and the extraordinary depth of talent in American gospel music.
Lift Me Up! features two outstanding groups, the Legendary Ingramettes of Richmond, Virginia, and the Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers from Covington, Kentucky. Backed by their sizzling band, the Legendary Ingramettes reign as one of Virginia’s premier traditional gospel ensembles. The Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers are among the nation’s foremost practitioners of the venerable art of unaccompanied gospel harmony singing.
This engagement of Lift Me Up! Gospel Masters is made possible through the Folk and Traditional Arts Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in collaboration with the National Council for the Traditional Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
