PICKENS — The wheel will be turning and the hills resounding in song at Hagood Mill on Aug. 16 as “Music in the Mountains 2014” presents an old-time camp meeting sing-along just like our forefathers did 100 years ago.
The event kicks off at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m.
The Owens family of St. Andrews Methodist Church in Easley will lead the gospel singing session at 11:30 a.m. The Owens family is part of a rich treasury of gospel songsters from the area, singing together as a family since the 1920s.
The members are led by their piano patriarch, Thomas Owens, who has played for many of the old time quartets at historic gospel singings over the years.
At 12:30 p.m., the mellow renderings of Roosevelt Baker and the Gospel True Tones African American Gospel group from Easley will fill the air. Roosevelt Baker sang for the famous Jackson Brothers who were awarded the S.C. State Heritage Award.
Following the Gospel True Tones will be gospel renderings of Lib Porter and Heartstrings.
The Hagood Mill is located at 138 Hagood Mill Road. Call 864-898-2936 or visit www.visitpickenscounty.com/calendar for more information.
