Celebrate the New Year in Jekyll Island
Join us in Jekyll Island at the New Convention Center, 1 Beachview Dr. for a great weekend of Bluegrass! There is hardly a better way to start 2013. We will be there on Friday, January 4th. Our sets are scheduled for 3:45 pm and 9:30 pm. Don’t miss any of these 3 days of great music .
We have had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends this week. We did our special Christmas music at church last Sunday…our choir director, Suzi Lawson, did a fine job of choosing beautiful songs for us to sing and we had a few past choir members (who no longer live here but were in for Christmas)join us. We concluded the service with the Hallelujah Chorus and it was like the “Cold Spring Tabernacle Choir”. Magnificent! Pastor Doug mentioned to someone that he thought we should conclude every service that way! On Christmas Eve, we celebrated Communion at our church as a family. Our Pastor, Doug LaPointe, serves Communion for several hours on Christmas Eve so that families can come together and partake of the Lord’s sacrament. After the Lord’s Supper, we had supper at Doyle and Suzanne’s…tacos! It was so good, and a nice change from ham/turkey that was to follow. We have exchanged gifts on Christmas eve for several years now. I think it started when Suzi and Kristi were little and wanted to be home for Christmas morning. On Christmas day, we had dinner at our house. There were 15 of us, and it was so much fun!
The day after Christmas, we celebrated Ben’s birthday at Suzanne and Doyle’s (barbeque). Rob and Carla came in from KY and are here in Bristol for a few days. It has been a busy but wonderful week!
Suzanne and Doyle’s tree was HUGE this year! It must have been 12 or 13 feet tall. Kenneth said that when he and Suzanne loaded it on his truck, more hung off the tail gate than was in the truck! Suzanne wanted a BIG tree and she got it!
Doyle and the guys have completed a new recording that should be out in March. They have been working on it for about 2 months, when they could find the time to get together at the studio. They recorded this one at Josh Swift’s studio and some at Mike Roger’s studio, I think. In the next few weeks, they are headed to the studio at Crossroads to start recording some special songs that will be a part of a new opportunity for you and for us. More about that later on…
Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Herndon, VA
We are excited about 2 concerts that will take place at Holy Cross . Lutheran Church in Herndon, VA in March. On March 16, there will be both 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm shows at the church. The DC area has long been a fertile field for bluegrass and we are so pleased to be headed back to Holy Cross. You can buy tickets for both of these shows right on our website. Look for that show in our schedule and click on the BUY TICKETS button. It will lead you to our store where you can get your tickets. There are a limited number of seats for each of these shows, and I have been processing orders for them at a pretty good clip considering it’s 3 months away! I hope all of you in the DC area will plan to come!
All of us at Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver hope that 2013 will be a prosperous year for you and your family and that God will do great things in your lives!
All the best,
