Liner Notes

This album is the result of many requests over the years for a recording of our favourite gospel music. Like Don Messer, our concerts and shows always include a "quiet time" with at least one song in a religious flavour. Sometimes it's an old country gospel hit, sometimes it's more contemporary, sometimes it's in the bluegrass style, or sometimes it's an old hymn tune. We hope you enjoy the variety of selections we has chosen for this recording.

They say 'the family that prays together, stays together'. We also believe 'the family that plays together, stays together'. The year 2000 marks the Fiftieth Anniversary of Merv Woods and His Orchestra. The current group has been together for over 15 years and truly are like a family. We hope this album brings home the spirit of Fellowship and Faith as it has to our "extended family".

We are pleased to feature Canadian Open Fiddle Champion, Scott Woods. Gini (Kechnie) Williams adds a warmth with her beautiful voice. Gini's love for gospel music stems from her father's participation in the gospel group: Joyful Sound. Ivan Felker's dedication to old time music is evident in many ways - here, he not only plays some wonderful guitar licks, but his vocal numbers are also smooth and sweet. You are invited to sing or hum along with our Gospel Favourites.
