Singings return to city of Grantville's historic train depot

The traditional old-fashioned Southern gospel singings are returning to the historic train depot in Grantville. "For the past several years, one of the features of the Coweta arts scene has been the monthly Southern Country Gospel Music Sings held in the Grantville old train depot," said Forrest Schultz, a Grantville resident who distributes information about arts events in Coweta County via e-mail. Roy Smith and Dan Burdette organize the singing. Burdette said this month's singing will be June 28 at 7 p.m. Singing will be the cleghorns from Warner Robins and the Christianaires from LaGrange. Next month, the singing will be on July 26 at 7 p.m. Smith said the Knox Family from Tallahassee, Ala., the Toomey Family from Phenix City, Ala. and One Accord from Columbus.
"You don't want to miss these two nights of old-fashioned gospel singing," Smith said. "Some of these groups are new to the area, and they are all good." "The atmosphere is informal, sort of like a picnic, and, in fact, refreshments are served, and you may get up from your seat whenever you wish and listen from outside if you want," Schultz said. "There is no exact length to these concerts. They typically last about three hours," he said.
