Jim Hamill Memorial Concert

I don’t typically post concert announcements on this thread, but this one is worth making an exception for and posting. Charlie Sexton of Sweet Creek Promotions announced: [EDIT, 6/18/12: Broken link removed.]

Recently, a very dear friend of mine, “Big Jim” Hamill passed away. Many of you already know that he was the legendary lead vocalist for The Kingsmen Quartet from Asheville, NC. Mr. Hamill had been very sick for a number of years, and spent the last year of his life in a physical rehab facility following an orthopedic surgery that he never really recovered from. At the prompting of another old friend, Mr. Lane Rainwater, we’ve planned a Memorial Concert to honor the life of “Big Jim”, and to raise some much needed funds for his sweet widow, Jan Hamill. She’s had many health problems of her own for the last several years. I hope you can plan to attend this great night of music, fun and stories as we honor the memory of this gentle giant.

The concert will feature the Mark Trammell Trio, the Diplomats, the Old Paths Quartet, the Original Liberty, Randy Miller, and Calvary’s Way. It will be held Friday, January 25, 2008 at 7 PM at Open Bible Tabernacle (545 Lorene Drive, Marietta, GA). There will be no admission charge; an offering will be received to benefit Jan Hamill and the Hamill family. A concert poster can be found here. [EDIT, 2/22/13: Broken link removed.]
