Saturday News Roundup #54
Thousand Comment Contest update
This week’s contest is going strong. The top 5 most active commenters will get a CD or tape as a prize; if we hit 1,000 comments, the most active commenter gets to pick a new CD from Springside or CrossroadsMusic.com. There are nearly 700 comments, certainly within striking distance of triggering the grand prize.
In the News
- The Blackwood Brothers (Jimmy Blackwood’s group) will be on the cover of the September Singing News. Congratulations to a deserving quartet.
- Word has it the Kingsmen recorded a live CD/DVD of new material last weekend, and that the taping went well.
- The National Quartet Convention has a complete, final schedule up. (Of course, with occasional group changes, it isn’t ever completely final till it’s over, but it’s about as close as we’ll get in advance.)
- Diana Brantley posted an excellent review of a recent concert by Freedom. [EDIT, 3/16/13: Broken link removed.]
- Wes Burke also posted an excellent concert review; his was of a recent Cathedrals Remembered concert.
