Faithful Crossings looking for pickers

Faithful CrossingsFaithful Crossings, a Florida-based family Gospel band and ministry, is looking to hire a number of bluegrass pickers for their live show.

The group is based around the vocals of Tammy Sumner, a former member of Sweetwater Revival, with husband Curtis Sumner and children Taylor and Lauren as well as new group members Al Mercer and Lisa Nielsen. Up until now, they have performed to backing tracks, but are currently seeking acoustic/bluegrass players to work their concerts.

They are looking for musicians who can play rhythm guitar, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, dobro, and banjo. The band is especially interested in pickers who live in Central Florida and can be available to travel on weekends.

Audio samples of Faithful Crossings’ music can be heard on their web site, where the tour schedule is also displayed.

Interested musicians are invited to contact Arnie Shipp with AWS Management at (864) 981-5811.
