Evans Family’s Gospel Music Reunion slated

-A A +A

The Evans Family of Rockwood will again host its 26th annual Gospel Singers Reunion this weekend at Roane County Park.

The singing will be from 4 to 10 p.m. Sept. 22.

Dudley Evans said this year’s singing features several outstanding regional gospel trios and quartets that will fill the park with great sounds of inspirational songs for all gospel music lovers.

As in past years, the singing is free, but those attending are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the needy. This year’s contributions will go to The Courts of Praise food pantry and soup kitchen in Harriman.

The groups scheduled this year include The Southland Quartet and The Heritage Quartet, both from Chattanooga. Also appearing will be Dave Raby, Johnny Hamilton, The Donnie Young Family, Ben Jam, Everlasting, The Raby Trio, Family Ties and others, with The Evans Family hosting.

Several love offerings for the groups will be taken up throughout the evening.
