Rick Fair joins Southern Sound
Former Palmetto State Quartet baritone Rick Fair is joining Ben Harris’s Southern Sound Quartet as their bass singer. Fair has sung baritone and bass with any number of groups, including the Blackwood Quartet (bass), Hovie Lister and the Statesmen (baritone), and Palmetto State (baritone).
Departing Southern Sound bass Alan Brewster leaves on good terms. Group manager Ben Harris says that he’s leaving to devote more time to his business, and adds: “Alan and his lovely wife Pam will be missed more than words can say. They brought a touch of grace and character to Southern Sound, and are lasting members of our extended family. Although Alan will not be part of our touring ensemble, he will in fact, always be a member of Southern Sound and very much loved by all of us. Alan, we wish you and Pam only the best, as you have given your best, not only to us, but to your Heavenly Father. These two kind and generous people are the real thing. They both love the Lord and prove it everyday in their walk with Him. Be well my friends and go with God!”
As much as anything else, it’s the classy way the transition was handled that makes it worth a post. If only all personnel transfers went that smoothly!
