Product Details

Product Description

The Sullivan Family of St. Stephens, AL, has been playing old-fashioned string band and bluegrass music for half a century. These self-described "country people" see their music not simply as entertainment or art, but as a ministry, one started by the Pentecostal preacher Arthur Sullivan, who mobilized his siblings and children to provide music at revivals and brush arbor churches he pastured in the 40s. Though today the Sullivans play at major festivals, their repertoire still contains only gospel messages - no "worldly" songs. This thoughtfully produced video examines Alabama's unique Sullivan Family over their 50 year legacy. Footage from the front porch of Uncle Pen's Cabin with Bill Monroe, The Sullivan Family's induction into the Hall of Fame, classic footage of Bluegrass Favorites by the Sullivan Family and vintage footage of The Early Years tells the story of the "First Family of Bluegrass Gospel Music." Dedicated to the memory of Emmett Sullivan (1936-1993).
