Gospel Workshop

In a month where WWIII loomed, in an idyllic environment surrounded by newborns and generational interaction, it was hearing Gregory Hoskins lead the crowd in Cohen's "Hallelujah," Sarah Harmer sing the eulogic "Goin’ Out" and witnessing the towering force of inspiration that is Ken Whiteley that brought unexpected tears of joy to any music fan who'd thought they'd seen everything. Only Welsh folkie Martyn Joseph struck a wrong note with his righteous yet ultimately empty political indignation; the beautiful baritone gospel singer Pat Patrick was far more chilling when warning that "God’s going to trouble the water.”
