We Are All In This Together (newsletter)

 

We need one another, we want to learn, grow, transform our lives and have fun together. We are the co-creators of this moment.

— First Parish of Sudbury is welcoming back the well known and well loved bluegrass group, Southern Rail to provide music for their service on the theme of “Transformations” on Sunday, March 4th at 10:00 am.

A well-known and well-loved bluegrass group, Southern Rail’s performances are high-energy exuberant fun, with riveting harmonies, irrepressible humor and sparkling banjo, mandolin, and guitar solo work. In addition to their instrumental music, they will blend their voices in tight harmony to offer a set of bluegrass and gospel songs that were carefully chosen to weave throughout the service.  Each song offers a unique perspective about transformation.  There will be tunes by Hank Williams, Albert Brumley,  Barker Aaron Gayle and Randall Hilton as well as traditional tunes including “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “The Darkest Hour”.  Rounding out this special music service are several tunes written by band member Jim Muller including “My Old Friends” and “Walk Your Way to Heaven”.

Come and hear this special musical service coordinated with Music Director, Debra Morris-Bennett.  Band members are Jim Muller (guitar), Sharon Horovitch (acoustic bass), Rich Stillman (banjo) and John Tibert  (mandolin).   Their playing and singing promises to be “transformational”!
