Paul Family Bluegrass

We are a family of seven that continually strive to draw nearer to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, knowing fully that without the sacrifice of His life on the cross we would not have the opportunity of experiencing eternal life. As a family we strive and struggle daily to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by honoring Him with everything we do. Our heart’s mission is to encourage families through music. It is amazing what a family can do when they turn their hearts towards the Lord and work together to follow His ways. When we are not tappin’ our toes to a little music you can probably find us tappin’ trees. As a family we are maple syrup farmers that manage and harvest maple syrup from 260 acres of hardwood forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We feature a mix of traditional hymns, contemporary Christian worship with a country music flare and original songs that all feature positive and encouraging messages in a family friendly setting.

The Armouraires Quartet

We as the Armouraires Quartet feel that our mission is to go where God leads and let the Lord use our personal testimonies and music to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We will provide a caring, sharing and healing performance which will be the expression of God’s grace, equip believers, and transform the broken, battered and forsaken. We live in a society that challenges families and individuals; therefore we will commit our lives to empower those we meet to resist challenges that could threaten their very existence.

We thank God for His many blessings he has bestowed upon each of us. If it wasn’t for His grace & mercy none of what we’ve been blessed to do would be possible.  For that, we as a group give ALL glory and honor to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

George Nicholson

Concerts are about much more than music and entertainment for George Nicholson. Using storytelling and original songs, George weaves a tapestry of his 40-year sojourn as a Christian, beginning in 1982 when he was led to Christ by his mother’s lifelong friend. He shares stories of working at PTL Ministries with Jim and Tammy Bakker in Fort Mill, SC and returning home again to Chicago to launch a Christian radio program and lead a juvenile detention ministry.

George shares stories about raising his sons in the faith, coaching their sports teams, and guiding them to discover the gifts and talents God equipped them with in pursuit of His vision for their lives.

Marsha Bertram

In 1991, Marsha married her true-love Steve and knew her number one wish was to raise a family.  She left behind her weekends of singing and playing bass and rhythm on the keyboards in the band Country Cruisin’ to make that dream happen.  Her music never left her side though and during quiet times and after the kids were in bed, she would find herself in front of the electronic piano that Steve bought for her, singing and writing many songs.  In the studio, she recorded her favorite songs on her CD called ”Peace…of My Mind.”  Family life took over until the kids graduated.  Fast-forward 30 years, every Sunday Marsha accompanies her Faith Lutheran Church family on their piano/organ and sings during Communion services, sprinkling in a couple of her own songs as pieces to back up the message within the sermon. 
Then, in 2020, she mounted a friend’s horse who bucked her off onto a trailer tongue.  When the horse got tangled up in the trailer tongue with her, stomping on her multiple times, her life took an abrupt turn.  Because a hoof had severed the nerve in her cheek, she couldn’t understand why she was being Med Flighted, thinking it was just her back that was injured.  As the medical staff wheeled her in for surgery, they stunned her by stating “multiple facial fractures.”  She began praying for a successful surgery and for God to guide the surgeon’s hands and help the surgeon do the best he could.  In return, she agreed to play a “concert” for Him which was performed a year to the date later.  The concert can be found on YouTube as “God Sent a Horse” which is a full account of how God had never left her side, creating many blessings from tragedy through recovery.  On Year 2, Marsha offered an evening hour of music at the church where anyone could come in and bring their troubles before the Lord during “Sweet Hour of Prayer.”  Marsha looks forward to sharing music again while thanking God at the “Mineral Point Gospel Music Fest.”  God is good!
