“The Primitive Quartet counts it a joy and privilege to spread the gospel through song,” Berry said. “Their goal is to help lead souls to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.”

Berry said the quartet was formed as a result of a fishing trip.

“They were sitting around the campfire singing and realized they had four-part harmony,” he said. “So, they started singing at churches. Now, they travel about 50,000 miles each year spreading the gospel through their music.”

The Primitive Quartet’s music is the traditional mountain shape note style singing accompanied by acoustical instruments, including the mandolin, banjo, fiddle, guitar and acoustic bass.

“They are an outstanding bluegrass gospel quartet and anybody that enjoys that kind of music and loves the Lord will not want to miss The Primitive Quartet,” Berry said. “We will also be blessed by the music of the Benton Brothers and Company and Beauty for Ashes. Everybody that has heard them knows how good they are.”

Berry produces gospel music concerts at different locations in and around Pike County and he does so when the Lord speaks to him.

“I pray and I listen to the Lord and do what he leads me to do,” Berry said. “I pray that hearts will be changed through the music they hear. If one heart is changed, that’s reason enough.”

Concessions will be sold at The King’s Highway Jubilee 2014. All profits will benefit the missions/outreach of Mt. Olive Assembly of God. There is no admission to the concert but a love offering will be taken for the band’s expenses.
