When Big Joe Fitz talks about blues, soul and gospel authenticity and the real deals in our midst, we do well to listen. Fitz – the well-known regional blues and soul interpreter, curator and deejay – had his hand in the booking of North Carolina’s John Thorpe & Truth, and he has given his personal guarantee that these high practitioners of the gospel arts will, indeed, raise all roofs within earshot. John Thorpe & Truth will perform at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 207 Albany Avenue in Kingston, this Saturday, June 11 at 3 p.m. This show is free and open to the public.
Good news for gospel-lovers on Saturday
