The Dixie Echoes are returning to Martin. This legendary quartet will be appearing Sunday evening at 6 at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, located at 562 Old Troy Road. To reach the church from Highway 45E, turn right on Old Troy Road a mile south of Westview High School in Martin. For nearly 50 years, The Dixie Echoes have been delivering the good news of the gospel through their spiritually uplifting musical ministry, a spokesman said. The Dixie Echoes are probably best remembered for their performances on the “Gospel Singing Jubilee,” which aired in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The quartet consists of long-time lead vocalist Randy Shelnut, baritone Randy Shelnut Jr., tenor Wesley Smith and bass vocalist Pat Barker, with award-winning pianist Stewart Varnado. The Dixie Echoes have maintained a refreshing vocal style and a diverse song selection that appeal to audiences of all ages, the spokesman added. For more information, call (731) 587-5939. The Rev. Mac McCaleb and the fellowship of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church invite the community to attend.
