Kevin McCloud will present his program of Contemporary Christian music on Friday, July 6, at 8 p.m. at the Rock Creek Recreation Area Kiwanis Campfire Program.
This is McCloud’s first appearance at the Kiwanis Campfire Programs, and organizers are excited. He does a great job mixing many old favorites with new songs. Appalachia is steeped in the history of Christian music, as anyone knows who has ever listened to Tennessee Ernie Ford, the Cash Family and many others. McCloud is serious about the music and the messages delivered in the songs. He recently competed in the finals of Tri-Cities Got Talent. He has written, composed and produced two CDs, and is working on a third.
This is the 18th year of the Campfire Program, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Erwin with the support of the Cherokee National Forest Service. The programs are absolutely free, including a marshmallow roast after the show. The program will last one hour. Y’all come and bring the entire family.
