The well-known Shenandoah Valley singing group Faithfull Men will perform at the Church of Our Saviour on Saturday afternoon.
Founded in 1998, group has performed more than 500 concerts over 20 years at locations along the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah Valley. Their Loudoun County performance will be held at 4 p.m., April 6, at the church, located at 20340 James Monroe Highway south of Leesburg. There will be a free-will offering and potluck to follow the performance.
The group was formed as a triple quartet, with six tenor voices, six baritone-bass voices, and a pianist, and comprises singers from various churches in the Waynesboro area. Their first performances were from a songbook titled “Faithful Men,” and their pastor at Main Street United Methodist Church suggested that they take that title as the name of the group.
Ten members of the group have participated since its founding year. One of them is Loudoun County native John Guthrie, who sings bass with the group. He describes his twenty years in the group as “a growing experience with the church and my relationship to Christ.” The group’s members have become close friends, and Guthrie further describes the group as “helping the members stay grounded in their faith and in being there for each other.”
