Local Gospel group Pathway to join with America’s Mark Trammell Quartet for a debut concert at the Armagh City Hotel.

The Pathway Quartet, which rehearses every week in Lisburn’s Church of the Nazarene, will take to the stage with the Mark Trammell Quartet for the show’s grand finale, which organisers are billing as ‘Reunited’.

Dustin Black, now the tenor with Pathway and a talented singer/songwriter in his own right, was a member of The Mark Trammell Quartet until he got married and decided to move to live in Northern Ireland and use his talents in music ministry on these shores.

Organisers ND Concerts are thrilled to have been able to arrange a Grand Finale that will see Dustin reunited with his old friends in The Mark Trammell Quartet as Pathway Quartet, who are about to release a new album, join one of America’s premier groups on stage to treat the audience to some of the best loved Southern Gospel songs and bring the concert to a close.

“I was privileged to sing with Mark and the guys for 2 and a half years,” explained Dustin, “I met a lot of wonderful people during those years, most importantly, my wife Rachael.

“ I am so thankful for the time and effort that was invested in my life by Mark Trammell Quartet. It is something I’ll never forget.”

Commenting on this partnership Pathway’s George Strange said: “We are not only a Southern Gospel group but each of us are massive fans of the genre, meaning we really appreciate the quality of The Mark Trammell Quartet.

“As huge fans we were looking forward to seeing them in concert in Armagh in September but to be given the opportunity to join them on stage and sing with them is just incredible.

“Obviously with Dustin’s links it makes it just that little bit more special for Pathway.”

With a new CD releasing in June, and the opportunity the share in a finale with Southern gospel legend Mark Trammell and his quartet, the guys in Pathway have much to look forward to and are excited at the doors that are opening for their ministry.

The concert takes place on Saturday 10 September in Armagh City Hotel.
