The Welcome Wagon
The Welcome Wagon is an indie/gospel group is made up of a Presbyterian minister Vito Aiuto and his wife Monique. Their 2008 debut album “Welcome to the Welcome Wagon” is filled with folky takes on classic hymns as well as other tunes.
The Brilliance is led by David Gungor, the brother of Michael Gungor. They are one of the most worshipful bands I have ever heard. They use a classical music approach to many of their songs. There are two bands named “The Brilliance” so their name can be confusing. Here is a link to one of my favorite songs titled, “Dust We Are and Shall Return” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygX1TP4og8I
The Avett Brothers
The Avett Brothers from North Carolina…The songs “Ten Thousand Words” “I and Love and You” and “The Weight of Lies” are some of their best. Scott (39) and Seth (35) are rare breeds in my generation; for they excel in the the lost art of folk music. Scott and Seth grew up singing in the family gospel group “Jim Avett and Family.” The Avett brothers’ grandfather, Clegg Avett (1917–1976), was a Methodist minister. Much of their music reflects religious themes and undertones. Although The Avett Brothers are not necessarily musicians that fall under the label of “Christian” music, they are no doubt a safe and clean alternative to much of the junk out there today. Sarah and I Saw AB at the Boutwell Auditorium in Birmingham in 2012…Amazing!
