With an ideal July evening and a strong roster of performers including the featured “Three and Company” from Alberta, Saturday night’s second staging of the Pass Creek Gospel Music Festival went off well.

“The quality, effort and passion of the local groups was fantastic,” described organizer John Phillips, after the fact.

 

Pictured below: "Three & Company" from left: Brent Anderson, Diane Johnson and Dale Johnson were a popular addition to this year's event.

 

“Thanks to the efforts of Pastor Tammy Francis and Pastor Cyndi Pelltier, plus Tyrone Anderson and the Blueberry Pickers. The amount of time they devote to practicing and preparing shows their commitment and outstanding character… and all without complaint when things weren’t perfect.”

If performers and festival-goers were polled it’s more than likely kudos, and lots of it, would be directed toward John Phillips himself for his hard work.
