I caught several sets on Sunday at the 2022 National Quartet Convention kick off concert.

Tim Lovelace performed a stand-up routine along with several novelty songs.

Three Bridges sang their first of two sets planned this week. Elliott McCoy announced the reason the group is retiring at the end of 2022 is because he is 77 years old and ready to slow down.

Soloist Matt Linton made his NQC debut.

The Hoppers sang several songs before introducing Claude who joined them for the last two numbers. Dean said he hopes Connie will be able to join them later in the week.

Jim and Melissa Brady were joined by Michael Booth on their final song.

Greater Vision performed songs written by all three singers, Rodney Griffin, Jon Epley, and Chris Allman.

Tribute Quartet had an excellent stand that ended with “Some Call It Heaven” and “Good News From Jerusalem.”

The Mark Trammell Quartet introduced fans to their new bass singer Will Lane. The best moment of the entire evening was when they sang “Yesterday.” There were some intricate harmonies and creative uses of dynamics on that song that we often miss out on these days.

We were getting a bit tired due to the drive up earlier in the day, so we left early and missed performances by the Whisnants and Kingdom Heirs.
