PITSBURG – The Pitsburg Church of the Brethren will host the New Dawn Trio on Sept. 7, 6 p.m. This event is open to the public and refreshments will be served following the concert. The church is located at the west edge of Pitsburg, 8376 Pitsburg-Laura Rd.
New Dawn was formed in 2009 when three gospel singers were united by a series of non-related events. Bruce Shank had been singing gospel music for many years with various groups as well as solo. His sister, Dixie Magee, joined him in 2006 and they performed as a duet. In late 2008, Bruce met Larry Hart, and discovered his vocal talents. Larry was asked to join Bruce and Dixie, and the trio, New Dawn, was formed. The songs they sing speak to the heart – each with its own meaning. They have released two CD’s, and perform at churches, fairs, festivals and benefits. For information, contact Bruce Shank, 692-5789.
