This three-month fall series of concerts taking place on the third Thursday of the month will find Lost Radio Rounders – the acoustic duo of Tom Lindsay and Michael Eck – and a stellar group of special guests exploring a wide variety of historic American spiritual music.
This Thursday, Jim Gaudet and Bob Ristau (both of Jim Gaudet & the Railroad Boys) and Ryan Dunham (of the Red Haired Strangers) will join Lost Radio Rounders for “Mountain Gospel: The Sacred Roots of Country Music,” tracing the Appalachian spiritual legacy with tunes from string bands, brother duets, country/western legends, shape note singers and the Shaker tradition.
On Thursday, October 21, Albie (of the Black Fuel) and Kim Noyes (of the Tern Rounders) will join Lindsay and Eck for “Go Down, Moses: Spirituals and Gospel Blues,” which explore the profound influence of the African-American church on our country’s music, with a focus on slave songs, spirituals and the work of the guitar evangelists.
And finally on Thursday, November 18, Lost Radio Rounders return to their roots with “Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Gospel Songs of The Original Carter Family.” Young musicians Kyle Miller, Carolyn Perrotta and Emily Zeh will join Eck and Lindsay to harmonize on the classic Carter canon, including such favorites as “Anchored in Love,” “Keep on the Sunny Side” and, of course, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
Admission is free to all three performances, although donations are encouraged. All proceeds from Thursday’s performance will benefit Habitat for Humanity.
