Several dozen people gathered at New Hope Christian Fellowship Church in Shawville on Thursday night for a night of gospel and blues influenced holiday tunes.
Mike Biggar is a highly-acclaimed East Coast musician that plays a mix of country and gospel with a touch of blues. He reached out to Dr. Tim Perry, who pastors at New Hope, to include Shawville in his Christmas tour.
“Mike and I went to college together, 27 years ago … he was doing a swing through Ontario and we’re Facebook friends,” said Perry. “He got in touch with me to see if he could stop over here to do a show.”
