The Garry Polston Family will be performing at Mannsville United Methodist Church on Sunday at 7 p.m.
Everyone is invited to attend.
This Kentucky based group presents a concert of southern harmonies, including old hymns and songs written by the Polstons and others who write exclusively for the family. Their acapella arrangements are a favorite among their listeners, as well as piano numbers for some down home singing and guitars and banjo for some pickin' and grinnin'.

He is a singer, musician and composer and has sung for many years with such groups as The Servants, The Brotherhood Quartet and also has performed on an extensive tour with the legendary Sego Brothers and Naomi.
