Southern Convention Songs CD - Digital

  • Southern Convention Songs CD - Digital


Release Date: 2003


As an American art form, southern convention singing is an endangered species. But now this wonderful music, which had its heyday in the 1930's through the 1950's, lives again. On Southern Convention Songs you can hear a southern convention choir of voices including George Younce, Jake Hess, Glen Payne, Rex Nelon, Brock Speer, Ben Speer, Jeanne Johnson and others. Featured are 22 songs performed in their original harmonies. And these songs - meticulously recorded by Bill Gaither and Ben Speer - have a history! Ben Speer's father, Dad Speer, taught these songs in gospel singing schools when they were first composed and performed.
