I had the opportunity to see Old Paths in concert Sunday (05/20/12) at the Piedmont Baptist Church in Kannapolis NC. The addition of Daniel Ashmore on bass has added a great vocal blend the group seemed to lack as a trio. This young man has a vocal presence reminiscent of bass singer great Pat Barker.
The Old Paths performed for nearly two hours to an enthusiastic crowd, ready to have a good time. The group performed several songs from their new release Right Now. I enjoyed hearing “Battle Stand”, “I Know My God Can Do It”, “God’s Great” and “The Blood On My Hands”. Doug Roark had a heart touching story about his older brother, who happened to be in attendance at the concert, and his 21 years spent in prison.
Jeremy did a remarkable job on “I Of The Storm” and the group even had a fun bit on “Echoes From The Burning Bush” where Jeremy sang bass and Daniel attempted to sing tenor. Jeremy did surprisingly well singing bass. All in all, the Old Paths did a great job.
So because of that, I have a brand new copy of the group’s new CD, Right Now, to give away. The first person to email me the answer to the following trivia question will win. Good luck!
***The Old Paths recorded a song on the Right Now recording “When It All Starts Happening”. Name the group who originally recorded this song on a 2006 recording.***
UPDATE: Congratulations to Wayne for providing the correct answer of Mercy’s Mark to the trivia question. As of now this contest is considered closed. More free music coming this summer, so be on the lookout. Thanks again for your continued readership and support!
