The Gospel Friends were on the air...

From time to time, we like to have live music in the studio at WHUS. Our studio, as you can see, is not terribly huge, so if a band is bigger than, say, 5 pieces, we might have some difficulty fitting everyone in. One local band we've had the pleasure of having in the studio twice is Nick Anderson & the Gospel Friends. These folks don't play too many dates during the year, but they seem to get a great response whenever they do play. On December 11, 2005, they made their second in-studio appearance on the BG Cafe. Band members include Jim Plecan on mandolin & vocals, former WHUS DJ Tom Bowman on bass & vocals, singer Janice Main, Rich Gilbault on the banjo, and Nick Anderson on guitar & vocals. If you get a chance to see the Gospel Friends in person, by all means, you should. You can find them at the Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival in Weston, VT on Sunday, June 25th, and locally, at the Prudence Crandall Museum in Canterbury on Saturday, August 19th from 6-9PM.
