Weekly Roots Revival Service Blends Music and Worship
On Wednesday nights in Winston-Salem, there’s a unique service happening at Centenary United Methodist Church. It’s called Roots Revival, and it features outstanding local, regional and national musicians performing live in Centenary’s newly renovated auditorium. The Wednesday night sermons are based on the song texts from that evening’s performers. Each song is carefully selected in coordination with the minister, musicians, and Roots Revival Music Director, singer/songwriter Martha Bassett. She spoke with me about a new concert series at Centenary.
Martha also directs Roots Revival Stage, a new concert series at Centenary. The first performance of the New Year is Wednesday night, January 15th at 7:30 PM. It’ll feature The Amigos. We’ve been sampling from their new album due to be released February 1st. They’ll be joined in concert with legendary folk artist and four time Grammy award winner David Holt. The performance is free and open to the public, but you’ll need to reserve your seat.
