This fall, Songwriters of the Century, Bill and Gloria Gaither will present the sixth annual Gaither Fest music spectacular at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center in Myrtle Beach, S.C., during the weekend of Oct. 21 and 22. The legendary recording artists will present an exciting celebration, filled with the very best in Christian music, including Gaither’s own multi-award winning group, The Gaither Vocal Band. Friday night’s event on Oct. 21 begins at 7 p.m., with two concerts slated for Saturday, Oct. 22, at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
For nearly half a century, multiple Grammy and Dove award winner Bill Gaither has been a musical trailblazer. His reputation as a performer, songwriter and mentor for newly-discovered artists is known world-wide. Gaither’s beloved series of Homecoming CDs and DVDs continue to top the sales charts and attract an ever-increasing audience.
Whether you are a brand new fan or a longtime lover of feel-good Gospel music, don’t miss this incredible concert experience. “In times like these we must reflect on what is most important in our lives…faith, family and friends,” explains Gaither. “I invite everyone to join me and my special ‘friends’ for an uplifting musical extravaganza filled with joy, laughter, good music and great memories.”
The roster of talented “friends” taking the stage at Gaither Fest with Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band, include Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Russ Taff, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Isaacs, The Martins, Lynda Randle, Kevin Williams, Janet Paschal, Charlotte Ritchie, Ivan Parker, Karen Peck & New River, Gordon Mote, The Collingsworth Family, Gene McDonald, Ben Speer, Logan Smith, as well as noted speaker and humorist, Ken Davis, who will be featured on Saturday morning.
