Thread Name: Gospel Swap Weekend-- Good Idea?
Subject: RE: Gospel Swap Weekend-- Good Idea?
Gospel has been used for the music that in the UK is often called Sankey singing since the late 19th century. That's at least in part because Sankey called his books Gospel songs or Gospel hymns. Sometimes it gets modified to southern gospel or white gospel, but neither is accurate. Old time gospel might be best, think Carter Family's religious music. For more see those old threads.

I won't be surprised to have some Black Gospel or even some CCM at the weekend, but not the main course.
