Synopsis

Amazon.com
Born backstage at Prairie Home Companion after discovering a love for good-sounding a cappella gospel in a stairwell, the Hopeful Gospel Quartet features the quintessentially American Garrison Keillor alongside Kate McKenzie and husband-wife duo Robin and Linda Williams. On this disc, recorded live at a show billed "A Pretty Good Night at Carnegie Hall" and produced by none other than Chet Atkins, the Quartet lights into gospel standbys such as "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," "My Rock," and "Jordan." Keillor, who (of course) serves as MC, trades licks between throaty harmonies and droll tales of individuality and Midwestern Lutheranism. Atkins and a crack band of Nashvillians accompany the Quartet on some numbers, which are quite lovely. But the real treat, as always, is Keillor's wholesome, ticklish charm. --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

Great singing-along-with-while-driving-the-PA-Turnpike CD
Patrizia | Pennsylvania | 11/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The "Perfect Quartet" was renamed the "Hopeful Quartet" according to Mr. Keillor and they were in NY City to sing Gospel music because as he told the audience, "...some of you look like you need it." I needed this CD to perk up a long, frequent drive and it met the bill. Fun music and funny interludes."

"Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face as you listen to familiar gospel tunes with wonderful harmony. Great companion for solo trips in the car."
