Songs of Faith are a long-standing part of the music tradition of Appalachia. In keeping with that tradition, we felt it was time to host a resurrection holiday show to share with our many listeners who love Gospel music. Our first Pickup Country Resurrection Celebration has been an enjoyable project to pull together and we're already looking forward to next year's show. In case you missed the radio airings over the holiday weekend, we have included the full show, both with the player and also in downloadable .mP3 format.
A tremendous thank you to our broadcast partners Whitaker Bank - Stanton and Clay City and Steam Engine Pizza Pub and Session Room in Irvine. Also a big thank you to Illumi Studio and Hearne Funeral Home for being studio sponsors.
Of course the show absolutely would not have been possible if it weren't for the wonderful artists who shared their gospel music with us. The complete show playlist is below and artists are linked to their websites and pages where you can find more about their music. Please support Appalachian artists and musicians.

Artist Larah Helayne is the poster child for the Gateway Regional Arts Center's programs. She cut her teeth as a drama student at GRAC an early age. Years later Larah found her love of traditional music through the music of artists performing during GRAC's open-mic nights and Woodsongs Coffee House Hour. Larah made her own Woodsongs debut sharing her original songs and covers much to the delight of her audience.
Larah's show on March 28th was the first live broadcast from the GRAC of the Woodsongs series on Pickup Country. You can hear the full broadcast posted below or download the file to listen on your mp3 player.
