Earl Thomas gospel

He comes from a musical family, in which the mother sang gospel and dad played blues. He is endowed with a characteristic, hoarse voice, amazing stage charisma and energy. He is like Rod Stewart, Tina Turner and Seal combined into one!

The artist has visited Białystok twice already, this time he will present the gospel program! We will hear songs from the album “Plantation Gospel” and the old Negro Spirituals from the south-east of Tennessee, where he comes from.

Earl’s mother and grandmother taught him these traditional songs, passed down from generation to generation. He also listened to them at the church in his hometown of Pikeville. As he says, these songs accompany him all his life. These are songs created from the experience of the slavery era and describe the era of the fight for civic rights. They talk about working on cotton fields, social inequalities – everything that African Americans hold dear.

Earl Thomas  will be accompanied by the vocal a capella trio: Gerard Mcarthur, Paul Connor Mcarthur and Greig Taylor.
