Harvest Hoe Down at Centralhatchee First Baptist

(Centralhatchee) — Get ready for a great time on Sunday, Oct. 22nd. Cross Ties Band will be joining us in the morning service at 11:00 a.m.

The Cross Ties Band is an acoustic, stringed instrument band based in northwest Georgia.

Covering a broad spectrum of musical tastes, the versatile ensemble enjoys playing and singing bluegrass, gospel, a cappella spirituals, Sacred Harp hymns, and traditional Irish music.

With “something for everybody,” the group is seen regularly at churches, festivals, and private social events throughout Georgia and the southeast.

Although Cross Ties was only officially formed as a band in 2003, some band members have been performing together since 1987 as The Universal Pickers.

The band recently re-released its 1993 recording “Original Sacred Harp” on CD. This recording has gained national attention as a selection requested by the Library of Congress.

The Cross Ties Band consists of Johnny Wright, Randy Garrett, Randy Ellis, and Bret Mulcay.

The band’s repertoire reflects the diverse talents and backgrounds of the individual members, and a Cross Ties show is full of instrument swapping and unexpected combinations of harmony. Coupled with enjoyable comedy and audience interaction, the end result is uplifting and entertaining.
