Leiper's Fork Bluegrass Performs at Campfire Fellowship Cowboy Church
Tuesday, January 31, 2012
A great blend of bluegrass and southern gospel music was heard at Campfire Fellowship Cowboy Church, Tipton, as the Leiper's Fork Bluegrass group performed. A mix of original, popular and even traditional gospel songs were performed in the unique sound of the group based out of Nashville, Tenn., and consisting of members from both Tennessee and Mississippi. Buddy Jones is a first tenor singer, mandolin player and emcee for the group.
"We presented a show of all gospel music," Jones said. "We were delighted to be with the folks here at the church in Tipton and hope to come back sometime."
Larry Marriott is the pastor at Campfire Fellowship Cowboy Church and said he felt the concert went very well. He added the church has hosted several groups in the two years they have been a church. One of the members of Leiper's Fork had actually been to the church before with another group and enjoyed playing at the venue and felt comfortable coming back.
