Your Question Answered: Gospel Music at Folklife

I was very excited to answer this inquiry that came in this morning from William:

Will there be any gospel music performers this year?

The answer is yes! We have some fantastic gospel musicians joining us this year.

Join us on Friday in the Bagley Wright Theatre beginning at 7pm for the Friday Night Gospel Celebration featuring the Total Experience Gospel Choir and Friends, and the Mount Calvary COGIC Praise Team.

If you are not familiar with the Total Experience Gospel Choir, I’d suggest watching our Northwest Stories documentary straight away:

We are also thrilled to welcome two new gospel groups to the Festival this year, both of whom will be joining the American Standard Time Showcase on Monday, May 27 beginning at 3:30pm on the Fountain Lawn Stage.

If you are not yet familiar with The Sojourners, be prepared to be blown away! Showcase host Greg Vandy has described them as one of his favorite discoveries of 2013.

Also in the American Standard Time Showcase will be the incredible Slide Brothers and their amazing pedal steel guitar.
