Jeff & Sheri Easter are making final preparations for their 7th Annual Homecoming in Lincolnton, Ga. May 7-10, 2015.
"We're so excited to be bringing in Dailey and Vincent, the Bowling Family, the Isaacs, the Primitive Quartet, Karen Peck and New River, and the Browders for this year's event,” Sheri said. “Our goal when we began was to introduce our hometown to some of the best in southern gospel music and these artists definitely exceed that goal."
"By having Little Roy Lewis & the Lizzy Long Show along with Lewis Tradition, you get the best of the still traveling Lewis Family members,” Jeff said. " Added to that are my folks who brought me into the world of music. They'are all crowd-pleasers."
