McCrary Sisters: FREE Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul Show

rmckie Uncategorized

As part of its Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul project, WXPN presents the McCrary Sisters in concert at World Cafe Live.

The McCrary Sisters are an American gospel music quartet from Nashville, Tennessee. Formed in 2010, these sisters (Beverly Ann McCrary, Deborah Dianne McCrary, Regina Avonette McCrary, and Alfreda Antionette McCrary) sing a unique style of gospel influenced by classic soul, Americana, blues and R&B.

The McCrary Sisters are the daughters of a former Baptist preacher, Reverend Samuel H. "Sam" McCrary, who was a founding member of The Fairfield Four. Growing up the sisters would watch the band rehearse in their home, and this became instrumental in their development as a group today.

Since 2010, The McCrary Sisters have released 3 albums. In addition to their own recordings, they are in-demand session singers, having added their amazing backing vocals to records and tours including Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Gregg Allman, Sheryl Crow, the Black Keys and many more.
