LOWESVILLE––The Tennessee-based Lakeside will perform a free concert, Sept. 24 at 6 p.m.
The Vineyard Church of Lowesville is the place to be, according to noted gospel singer and concert co-ordinator Carroll Cooke. And although the concert is free, as Cooke recently noted, a free-will offering will be taken up. Also on the bill will be Caroline & Co. of Denton.
According to Singing News magazine, Lakeside features John Robert Freels, Jackie Cummings, Walt Williamson and the father-son partnership of Greg and Lucas Blankenship. Plus, fiddlers Jimmy Sims and Amanda Thomas alternate travelling with the group. It all started out in East Tennessee back in 1997, when they were billed as the Gospel Bluegrass Boys. Ten years later, the group adopted the Lakeside moniker. They’re known for their bluegrass and Southern gospel stylings, the magazine adds, “and they do it all very well.”
Guitarist and singer-songwriter Caroline Owens is a homeschooled former child prodigy. Now all of 20 years old, she is already an award-winning performer, garnering much positive attention across the country and the world of gospel music. She and her band have been getting rave reviews for several years now. One such recent reviewer was Lorraine Jordan.
“We need more young folks to keep the bluegrass alive,” said Jordan. “Caroline Owens is a young North Carolina musician with a beautiful and classic, traditional vocal to lend to the band. I have no doubt about how bright the future is for her. The possibilities are endless for this incredibly talented band!”
The Vineyard Church is located at 1062 NC-16 South in Lowesville, just down the road from Hill’s Chapel United Methodist Church. The church features Southern, bluegrass and/or acoustic gospel concerts every Saturday evening.
