In conjunction with its Center-supported project Gospel Roots of Rock & Soul, WXPN presents the McCrary Sisters in concert at World Café Live. An American-Christian gospel music quartet from Nashville, the McCrary Sisters are the daughters of the late Rev. Samuel McCrary — one of the original members of the gospel quartet The Fairfield Four. The group sings a unique style of gospel, influenced by classic soul, Americana, blues, and R&B. They have released three studio albums, Our Journey (2010), All the Way (2013), and Let's Go (2015) with McC Records.

Through live performances, a radio documentary series, and a media-rich website, Gospel Roots of Rock & Soul explores the roots of gospel and its influence on secular popular music.

Admission is free; more event info to come.
