The Blackwood Legacy Quartet of Nashville, will be presenting a free Oakhurst concert at 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 28, at the Living Way Foursquare Church. Boasting an unbroken lineage to the Dove and Grammy-award winning Blackwood Brothers, the Mansion Records artists link the best of Southern Gospel's traditional sound with today's newer country gospel and worship music.
The Blackwood Legacy Quartet has an all-star line-up. Lead singer Daniel Childs is the great grandson to Blackwood Brothers founding father, Roy Blackwood. Spokane native Luke Yates sings baritone with the group, and is also an award-winning pianist.
