Thread Name: Angel Band
Subject: RE: Angel Band
The Angel Band were not known as a backup band for Lisa & Jean, who were the better known names of the bunch, but as group that that oozed & dripped with vocal talent. Tom Gibney as of late sings with Poor Ol Horse (Heather Wood & Davey Jones), Sandy Davis & Sarah Gregory have been performing together & with others for eons, Sara Newcomb, Jim McDade have also been greats to hear & Shari Ajemian, an incredible voice (& fiddler) has gone to directing theather, I believe, years ago. I think they all sang in a local (Boston) Sacred Harp gathering together. The thing that amazes me the most about them is the shear size of the talent (& I don't mean that some were large), it's not often you could round up 8 singers like that & keep that high going longer than a night on the town.
