Friday night’s performance at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro offered an interesting array of area musicians, centered for an evening around gospel songs. While that might immediately turn off some concertgoers, the songs being played—at least according to Gathering Church Associate Pastor Chris Breslin—were more soul music than anything else.
He was right, too. Jeff Crawford and company worked their way through many of the songs on their new compilation Hymns From The Gathering Church. Throughout the evening, the band switched through countless formations, transitioning smoothly from song to song as though this were a band who had toured on the material previously. Below are several clips from the evening.
