Paul Lancaster joins Palmetto State Quartet
Kerry Beatty has been the one mainstay of the Palmetto State Quartet through the numerous personnel changes they’ve had over the last few years. But it appears he’s left. Burke’s Brainwork notes an update to the group’s mySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/palmettostatequartet) that indicates that Paul Lancaster is their new lead singer.
Paul Lancaster has been criticized—unfairly—for never staying anywhere long. I have heard that even if he does a recording with a group, he has viewed some (and perhaps most) of his stints with groups as being an extended fill-in while the group determines its long-term direction.
