NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 17, 2014) – The debut of the Jim Brady Trio and the Booth Brothers first concert with new group member Paul Lancaster will highlight Legacy Five’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, which will be held at Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Hotel.

Brady has spent the last 12 years as the baritone singer of the award-winning Booth Brothers trio, but he will now be singing with his wife Melissa and former Legacy Five pianist Tim Parton as the Jim Brady Trio debuts on Thursday morning, Jan. 1.

Paul Lancaster is joining the Booth Brothers, and he will make his debut with the group on Wednesday evening, Dec. 31. That will also be Brady’s last concert with the group.

“It’s extraordinarily rare that you get to witness this much Southern Gospel Music history in one place at one time, ”says Legacy Five group manager and lead singer Scott Fowler. “To see and hear the Booth Brothers for the last time with Jim Brady, and to hear the new Jim Brady Trio and to hear the new Booth Brothers lineup all at the same event is really exciting. What better way than to ring out the old year and sing in the new year … the end of a season and the start of a new one.”

There will be four sessions of this year’s New Year’s Eve Celebration event, beginning at 7 p.m. on Dec. 30 with a lineup that includes the Collingsworth Family, the Burchfield Brothers, Triumphant Quartet and Tim Lovelace. The Collingsworth Family will be back for a 10 a.m. session on Wednesday morning, Dec. 31, along with the Freedom Singers and Rick White.

In addition to performances by both the new and existing configuration of the Booth Brothers, the 8 p.m. session on Dec. 31 will also include Greater Vision and a Jubilee performance that includes the Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and Legacy Five. Legacy Five will be performing at each session. Then, the event will conclude with a 10 a.m. concert on Jan. 1 that will include Cal Reichnor in addition to the host group and the Jim Brady Trio.

Phantom Tollbooth For my first Burchfield Brothers album, I appreciate the way you can relax, recognize your favorite inspirational melody and know it is in safe hands with a velvet touch.

DOVE NOMINATED BURCHFIELD BROTHERS RELEASE TIMES AND SEASONS THAT CELEBRATES TWENTY YEARS AS RECORDING ARTISTS

Project Showcases Favorite Songs Of Burchfield Brothers In One Special Album

Nashville, TN (February 15, 2010) —- Two of the most talented and unique musicians in the Christian and mainstream genres, Dove nominated Burchfield Brothers, release their eleventh CD, Times and Seasons.  The project features some of Jon and Ben Burchfield’s favorite songs from their previous albums and the CD is available on the duo’s website, www.burchfieldbrothers.com, and digitally online at iTunes.com.

Times and Seasons can be compared to a diary spanning two decades,” explains Jon Burchfield. “The ‘times’ reflect life experiences and the ‘seasons’ are like the ever-changing chapters in our lives. Whether it’s ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ from Appalachia or ‘Laguna Lights’ from the west coast, each song evokes a memory from another time and place.”

Times and Seasons showcases twelve eclectic selections that includes; “To Him Who Sits on the Throne,” “Amazing Grace,” “Be Thou My Vision,” “Doxology,” “Heart Of Mary” and “Sunset Coast.”  Many of the songs were inspired by nature itself, being the perfect example of letting go of the old and embracing the new.   The project is an instrumental collection of great hymns and timeless classics that features the multi-talented Burchfield Brothers playing guitar, marimba and Irish flutes.

Burchfield Brothers remain one of the most popular touring artists who have been performing for seventeen years, have appeared before more than 1.2 million fans and logged around one million miles.  They have been booked at such high-profile venues as Saddleback Church/Southern California, Crystal Cathedral/Garden Grove, CA, National Quartet Convention/Louisville, KY, Southern Baptist Convention/Dallas, TX and Moody Pastors Conference/Chicago, IL.  And the Burchfield Brothers have garnered praise from their peers in the music industry: Gloria Gaither, The chords they strike are not only on their instruments, but in the hearts of us all. Chonda Pierce, Their music is rich in variety and fills the room with laughter and wonder. James Dobson, You have set a tone that is both worshipful and fun! The way you intertwine the classics with some of the world’s greatest hymns really strikes a chord with me.

Jon and Ben Burchfield grew up in the Smoky Mountains, along with their three other siblings. They were influenced by a musical family where neighbors and friends would bring their instruments for memorable evenings of Gospel and Appalachian music. Eventually, the family moved to south of Chicago, IL and there the Burchfield boys were exposed to a new world of music that included Classical, Latin and Jazz.  At eighteen-years-old, Jon began to hone his guitar skills by playing in a backup band for CMA Country Hall of Fame member, Roy Clark.  At the same time, Ben received a classical music degree from Olivet Nazarene University and when Jon came off the road, the brothers moved to Nashville, TN to pursue their music career.  It wasn’t long before they received a Dove nomination for their “Smoky Mountain Memories” project and developed into a consistent strong touring act with numerous loyal fans.
