American gospel stars The McCrary Sisters will perform during worship at 11 am at First Baptist Church of Austin at 901 Trinity in downtown Austin on Sunday, October 13th. All are welcome.
For The McCrary Sisters, the daughters of the late Rev. Samuel McCrary -- one of the original members of the legendary gospel quartet The Fairfield Four - gospel music is a birthright, a lifelong love affair, a sometimes career, an indescribable joy, and occasionally, a cross to bear. The sisters, Ann, Deborah, Alfreda, and Regina, learned from the "best of the best," as many great Gospel singers, such as Mavis & Pops Staples, Mahalia and numerous others, stayed at the house of Rev. McCrary in Nashville on their tours across America.
They have become known for their work with a bevy of respected singer-songwriters, including Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, and Mike Farris. Performing with country music greats like Johnny Cash and Wynona Judd, the sister's list of recording sessions and performances spans genres and generations.
The sisters have recently added their unique blend of vocals to recording projects for blues greats Robert Randolph and Jonny Lang and with country artist Eric Church for CMT 2012 Artist of the Year Awards Show. Other performances have included 2011 and 2012 Americana Music Festival shows as well as sessions for the hit TV show Nashville.
Nothing will prepare you for the experience of hearing the McCrary Sisters live. No words can describe the power, and passion and pure soulfulness of the music.
