Hugh Moore & The Louvin Brothers

Went to the meetin at Carrowdore Mission Hall tonight - it's in a different building now, but it's where Graeme and I went to Sunday School. Hugh Moore was singing and Roy Ferris preached. It was great.

Hugh was one of the singers who really made a big impact on me when I was wee. He still has a brilliant bass voice. He used to sing with a guitar, now it's backing tapes. Tonight he really blew me away when he sang the old Louvin Brothers song "Thank God for My Christian Home".

Brilliant song, sung really well by a good man tonight. Excellent stuff.
