A BAND coming all the way from Australia to bring people the message of the Psalms is to perform in Boston.

Five-piece band Sons of Korah, who aim to bring a ‘unique contemporary flavour’ to the traditional idea of the Psalms, will be performing at the Holy Trinity Church, in Spilsby Road, Boston, next Wednesday, May 4.

It is part of a Bible Society tour around the country.

They will be playing at Sheffield on the Tuesday and Nottingham on the Thursday, and other venues include Bristol and Liverpool.

Boasting an acoustic, multi-ethnic sound, they promise to ‘put the Word of God and music together in a dynamic and captivating way’.

The band consists of lead vocalist Matthew Jacoby, bassist Rod Gear, drummer Rod Wilson, guitarist Mike Avery and backing singer Mike McCarthy.

Sons of Korah believe the Psalms ‘contain a particularly pertinent message for today and speak powerfully to a postmodern world that is generally more interested in what the biblical faith looks like from the inside than its abstract doctrinal expression’.

The group’s name comes from a group of Old Testament Levitical musicians which at least 13 Psalms are attributed to.

The group will be supported by British Academy of Songwriters Song Search 2005 award winner Freddie Kofi.

Freddie is an independent Gospel singer, with his own indie record label BritGos Music Entertainment, which he has had for more than 20 years.

Based in Nottingham, he defines his genre as acoustic, folk soul music.

The show will start at 7.30pm. Tickets £8 (£5 conc).
