LOWESVILLE––They’re each one half of what Bluegrass Today calls the “bluegrass power couple.”

They’re Lincolnton’s own Colin and Kathleen Ray, and they’ll be appearing in concert on Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. Joining the Rays will be the Branson, Mo.-based Southern-Raised Bluegrass.

Living Word Ministries of Lowesville is the place to be, according to noted gospel singer and concert co-ordinator Carroll Cooke. Although the concert is free, as Cooke recently noted, a free-will offering will be taken up.

Mrs. Ray is well known from her gospel gigs with her siblings as the Burnett Sisters. Mr. Ray is known for his work with bluegrass entertainer Jeff Parker. The two Rays met whilst attending East Tennessee State University. Young Mr. Ray often sat in with the Burnett Sisters, playing the banjo in their shows. The young couple is known for performing the country classic, “My Kind of Woman, My Kind of Man.”

Southern-Raised Bluegrass is a family group, trained in classical music but raised in the bluegrass traditions of the Ozarks. They’re four siblings: Lindsay, Matt, Emily and Alex Reith. Theirs is a blend of Christian country, bluegrass, Celtic and classical music. The group has won many awards and is very popular on You-Tube.

Living Word Ministries is located at 1062 NC-16 South in Lowesville, just down the road from Hill’s Chapel United Methodist Church. Living Word features Southern, bluegrass and/or acoustic gospel concerts every Saturday evening.
