The Cleghorns and The Hall Sisters in Concert at Grantville Depot on April 25


     This month's Southern Country Gospel Music Concert at Grantville's Railroad Freight Depot will be held on Saturday night April 25 at 7 PM.  Two groups will be featured:  The Cleghorns from Kathleen, Georgia and the Hall Sisters from Soperton, Georgia.  As usual, the admission is free, the atmosphere will be casual, refreshments will be served, and there will be opportunties to meet the artists.  The Depot and the adjacent Colley Park in the heart of a small southern town provide an ideal ambience for the Southern Country Gospel Music genre.  The Depot is located along the tracks at the end of Main Street in Grantville, a small town in southern Coweta County located at Exit 35 on Interstate 85.

These monthly concerts have become an important aspect of the Grantville arts scene. 


     The Cleghorns are a trio consisting of Judy Cleghorn and her two sons Jeff and Jim Cleghorn.  All three are active in the Second Baptist Church of Warner-Robins, GA.  Judy teaches Kindergarten there, Jeff is the Minister of Instrumental Music, and Jim is the Media and Information Technology Director.  Information on the Cleghorns is available on their website


     The Hall Sisters have been have been singing Southern Country Gospel for 35 years.  Three of the original ten (yes, ten!) sisters are still in the group -- Dianne, Becki, and Tammie, who are joined by several nieces and nephews to form the current group.  They sing both to minister as well as entertain.  


     Information on these concerts is available from Roy Smith at 770-251-5621 or
