BERWYN, PA — Trinity Presbyterian Church in Berwyn, PA continues their successful Spotlight Concert Series on Saturday, April 13th at 7 PM with a concert featuring Craig Bickhardt, Thom Schuyler, and Sylvia backed by John Mock. Join us in the sanctuary for one special evening of great music by three highly-acclaimed singer-songwriters and a world-renowned composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist. You’ll laugh a lot, cry a little and really be inspired.
This will be Craig and Thom’s fourth time returning to Trinity’s Spotlight Concert series. They are longtime friends, co-writers, and two of the original Writers in the Round at Nashville’s fabled Bluebird Café that was featured frequently in the hit Television series, Nashville. They are joined by Nashville based singer-songwriter Sylvia, backed by her friend John Mock.
Craig Bickhardt is the uniting force behind this critically acclaimed In-The-Round series at venues throughout the country. His songs have found their way onto platinum and Grammy-winning recordings by legends such as Johnny Cash, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, and B.B. King.
Thom Schuyler originally from Bethlehem, PA. was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2011. His songs have been recorded by more than 200 artists including “16th Avenue” by Lacy J. Dalton, and American Music Awards Song Of The Year “Love Will Turn You Around” by Kenny Rogers.
Sylvia is an American country music and country pop singer and songwriter. During her tenure as a solo artist with RCA Records between 1979 and 1987, Sylvia became one of the most celebrated women in country music. She released five albums with a dozen #1 and Top Ten hits, sold over four million records, and won multiple awards including the Academy of Country Music’s Female Vocalist of the Year and Billboard’s #1 Country Female Artist. Her biggest hit, a crossover chart-topper, was her single “Nobody” in 1982.
John Mock’s orchestral arrangements have been performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra, as well as the symphonies of Atlanta and Nashville. He has arranged songs, strings, and woodwinds for Kathy Mattea, October Project, Michael W. Smith, and Dixie Chicks. Mock has 2 solo albums and has recorded and performed with a number of prominent artists, including the Dixie Chicks, Dolly Parton, Kathy Mattea, Michael W. Smith, Martina McBride, and Sara Evans.
You will be moved by all four performers, knocked out by their musicianship, and entertained by the wonderful, often hilarious stories they tell about their songs and careers.
