Trinity Concert Series to host Jericho Road and The Stiff Family in Bluegrass Concert
April 5 @ 2:00 pm
For two decades Jericho Road was a well known acoustic band specializing in gospel music. The group performed in churches, community festivals, special events, and Bluegrass Festivals. They became known Island wide when they presented a weekly cablevision show. Their performances demonstrated strong instrumentation on guitar, mandolin and bass and strong vocal leads and harmonies. Jericho Road has won several awards for their music and have five recordings to their credit. Jericho Road dissolved in 2009. The members at that time were Emily and Vans Bryant, and Marnie and Harold Noye. Vans Bryant (guitar) and Harold Noye (mandolin), supported by Marnie Noye’s strong bass had been playing together in the Dunromin Band until 2018. During that time, they heard from many people that they missed the joy and comforting messages that Jericho Road’s music brought. As a result, the Bryants and the Noyes are reinstating Jericho Road as a gospel group. In the past, Jericho Road performed many times a year. This time, their plan is to accept a limited number of requests for performances.
The Stiff Family is a family of six who have recently relocated to Hunter River, Prince Edward Island and purchased a small farm there. They have been singing and playing Gospel Bluegrass together as a family since the fall of 2013 and they seek to glorify God in their music. In the Bluegrass tradition, they all sing and play acoustic stringed instruments. Dave (Dad) plays guitar, Heather (Mom) plays bass, Aaron 18 plays banjo and dobro, Hannah 18 plays mandolin and fiddle, Elizabeth 15 plays fiddle, and Abigail 12 plays fiddle. They have enjoyed playing at various venues on the island and look forward to participating in many more.
