Joyful Noise, July 19, 2019
July 19, 2019 Our GCM Hall of Fame guest band for June 21, 2019 was ?The Ferguson Family.? As you might expect, this family sings with very good harmony. The group is composed of Jim Ferguson (the Dad), Deanna (the Mom), Anna (23), Benjamin (21), Esther (19), Julia (19), Timothy (18), Joseph (15), and Samuel (12). Jim plays the piano and violin and sings baritone. He also made or rebuilt many of the stringed instruments that the family plays. Deanna plays the cello and is lead soprano. Anna plays the violin and sings Alto. Benjamin plays the piano, guitar, banjo, and sings tenor. Esther plays the violin and sings soprano. Julia plays the piano, cello, and sings soprano. Timothy plays the upright bass, trumpet, and sings bass. Joseph plays the ukulele, trombone, and sings tenor. Samuel plays the clarinet, mandolin, and is shifting from soprano to baritone. As you can see, this is a very talented family. ?Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame Appreciation Awards?were given to each person in the group. A ?Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame Gospel Music? trophy and framed certificate were also given to the band. This group didn?t play their instruments very much during the show, but the video shown is a sample of their talent on their instruments. They start slow, but will get lively about half way through the song.
