Country and Gospel Concert with the Gardner Family

An evening of Country and Gospel music by the Gardiner Family from Markethill, was held in Railway Street Presbyterian Church on Saturday 4th March. The Gardiner Family from Markethill, are well known throughout the Province and have made several CDs. The family comprises mother and father, Paul and Sharon, who sing, 20 year old Nicky who sings contemporary gospel, 15 year old Nathan who plays guitar, 12 year old Tim, who plays bass guitar and 7 year old Aaron, who both sings and plays drums. Unfortunately fifteen-year-old bass player Nathan was unable to play. The family were joined on stage by Sharon’s mother Pamela; completing a line up of all three generations of this talented musical family.

The church was well filled for the event and proceeds from the concert are in aid of the church refurbishment programme.

Following the concert a lovely supper was served in the Church Lecture Hall, by Phyllis Spence and her catering team.
