5th Annual Fall Gospel Singing

October 6, 2018
6 PM - 9 PM

The community is invited to an evening of music, hope and southern gospel singing on Saturday October 6, of 2018 in the Little Theater at Volunteer High School when Carter-Trent Funeral Home in Church Hill will sponsor its 5th Annual Fall Gospel Singing. Admission is FREE; yet tickets are required. Please visit Carter-Trent Funeral Home in Church Hill to pick up your tickets prior to the concert. (Maximum of 4 tickets) Tickets will be available in the office beginning Monday September 3, 2018. A love offering will be taken for the Hawkins County Foster Parent's and Foster Children's Association. This years lineup will feature 'The Carolina Boys Quartet" and "The Primitive Quartet."

The Carolina Boys Quartet holds high the mission of sharing the love of Jesus Christ with a lost and dying world. From the highest tenor note to the lowest bass note and everything in between The Carolina Boys Quartet seeks to use the gifts and talents God has blessed them with for His glory. These Christian brothers truly feel the call to ministry, and are honored to be a part of what God is doing through this group. They have a genuine joy in singing and sharing the Gospel through song. The Carolina Boys Quartet hopes that their songs will touch your heart, and encourage you in your daily walk with Christ.

The Carolina Boys Quartet received the 2015 New Traditional Quartet award at the Singing News Fan Awards.

The Primitive Quartet has been traveling and singing gospel music fourty three years, and we count it a joy and privilege to spread the gospel through song. Our ultimate goal is to see saints blessed and encouraged to have a closer walk with God and to help lead souls to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Our quartet was formed as a result of a fishing trip when we sat around the campfire at night and sang. We realized that we had four-part harmony, and from there we started singing at our home church and other local churches. Today we travel approximately fifty thousand miles a year and do about one hundred fifty dates annually. Our music is the traditional mountain shape note style singing accompanied by acoustical instruments including the mandolin, banjo, fiddle, guitars and acoustic bass. We play our own music on all our recordings and strive to duplicate the same sound on all our personal appearances.
