Published DateGILMANTON — The MacDonald Family Singers will perform a concert at the United Church on Route 140 in Gilmanton Ironworks on Sunday, June 30 at 6 p.m. followed by a time of refreshments and fellowship.
The MacDonald family performs a variety of music at each concert ranging from bluegrass gospel to sacred classical and more. They bring fifteen to twenty instruments with them to each concert including a standard bluegrass band (banjo, guitar, mandolin, and upright bass) and
a brass quartet (a trumpet, french horn, tuba, and trombone).
The MacDonald Family Singers is a homeschooling family—made up of nine members, the children range in age from thirteen to twenty-eight and started with just a vocal program. As the children grew, instruments and more musical styles were added. Their repertoire includes original
Scripture melodies, a cappella hymns, traditional, gospel bluegrass, and sacred classical. They sing at churches, nursing and retirement homes, community events, camps, senior centers, and other various venues. With the purchase of a bus in 2003, the MacDonald family has had the opportunity to make several cross-country singing tours per year.
Their album include, Honey In The Rock, Power In The Blood, and Glorify.
