LOWESVILLE, N.C.––For the Sowells, gospel music is a family affair.
They’re known as the Sowell Family Pickers, and the Tennessee-based siblings are coming to Living Word Ministries in Lowesville for an Oct. 26 performance. According to concert co-ordinator Carroll Cooke, the 6 p.m. concert is free, but a freewill offering will be taken up.
The group is comprised of brothers Jacob, Joshua, Justus and John-Mark, respectively on the banjo, guitar, Dobro and fiddle, and twin sisters Abigail and Naomi, respectively on the mandolin and bass.
The Sowells have performed all over the globe, and they’ve gained a worldwide reputation. One fan they recently earned is Teofil Mihoc, a Baptist pastor in Romania.
“It is a great blessing to have the Family Sowell in our country,” Mihoc recently said. “Through their musical ministry, we can share the gospel in the families of nonbelievers.
“It’s an amazing musical ministry,” he added, continuing, “By this ministry, we present the gospel.”
Living Word is located at 1062 NC-16 South in Lowesville, just down the road from Hill’s Chapel Methodist Church and not far from the Denver intersection of NC-16 Business and NC-73.
