TURNER — The Fall Music Festival at the North Turner Presbyterian Church will begin on Saturday, Sept. 22, with a celebration of religious belief by the Christian band Greater Purpose.

The second concert with the Way Down Willies is set for Oct. 20 and the final concert, featuring singer Bryce Libby and pianist Phil House, will mark the beginning of the holiday season on Dec. 1.

Greater Purpose’s songs are scriptural but are written based on members’ lives. Their music is from the heart, upbeat and meant to minister to others, both believers and non-believers.

Band mates Cathi Burke, Craig Hutchinson, Louise McCleery and Alan Hutchinson are known for their catchy melodies, powerful lead vocals, supporting harmonies, acoustic guitars and keyboards.

The Way Down Willies played at the church in last year’s concert series. Their mix of rock, country and golden oldies had people dancing in the aisles and clapping along to many songs. 

Known for his heartfelt vocals, Libby has made many appearances in productions and at supper clubs in Connecticut and New York. House has been organist at the First Universalist Unitarian Universalist Church in Auburn for more than 20 years. He has recorded several solo piano CD projects.

Each concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the church on Route 219, about 1 mile east of Route 4 and 219. Goodwill donations are taken at the door. All proceeds will benefit the church’s operational budget.Children are welcome. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call 225-3370.
