Concert Review: Legacy Five in Harrisonburg, VA

February 04, 2008 By: Aaron Category: Concert Reviews, Earl Brewer, Legacy Five, SG Artists, SG Music

Artist(s): Legacy Five

Venue: Eastern Mennonite High School Auditorium, Harrisonburg, VA

Once again, the guys have confirmed why they are one of my favorite quartets. Legacy Five comes to Harrisonburg every February, but this was the first time they had Tim Parton as a full-time piano player, not just a fill-in. Tim and the rest of the guys did a great job: they sang, they played, made us laugh, made us cry. It was simply a great concert.

A rough songlist, minus all the speaking, jokes, and such:

1. O, Say But I’m Glad
2. Strike Up The Band
3. Praise Him Medley (acappella, and it was fantastic!)
4. Know So Salvation
5. Tim Parton Piano Solo
6. Go Right Out (this was done in the four-guys-and-a-piano style, and I preferred that version to the one on their Know So Salvation CD.
7. On The Jericho Road (bass singer Glenn Dustin rattled the place!)
8. Why
9. Whosoever
10. Champion Of Love
11. Walk With Me
12. Tim Parton Solo (he played and sang a beautiful song called “God’s Been Good.” I really hope they include this on a future project.)
13. Scott leads audience in some hymns.
14. Where No One Stands Alone.

Another highlight was during the second half, Scott Fowler mentioned that legendary pianist Earl Brewer was in the audience (he sat a couple rows back from me.) Scott asked him to come onstage and play a song, and he did great! That was cool to see a living legend.
