Frankly Speaking – Summer Breeze Concert – Gospel


The Summer Breeze concert series for 2008 was quite successful. They drew good-sized crowds who enjoyed the music in person and, later on Radio Cafe Hertford 103. It was our pleasure to put the music on our web site for one and all to enjoy.

The music was quite a variety. The opening act was Connected which did just that with the audience. Following that jazzy presentation there was bluegrass by Strings Attached – and those attached strings sounded good.

The closer was the 2008 Gospel Festival with music by the Locust Grove AME Church Choir, The Blessing Boys of Hertford United Methodist Church, Cherry Alexander from Warren’s Grove Church, and the Holy Trinity Community Church Male Chorus.

It was an excellent cross-section of gospel music climaxed by the outstanding men from Holy Trinity.

The first two concerts had to be moved to the Recreation Center, but the gospelers did perform at the Newbold-White House site on a perfect-weather day.

Our thanks to the performers, the attendees, and to those who contributed their talents. Thanks from Radio Cafe Hertford 103. Frank Roberts
