Good Concert

Last evening we attended a concert by an Irish husband-wife team, composer/pianist Keith and singer Kristyn Getty, at Harvest Bible Chapel in Oakville. They write contemporary hymns, their most well-known piece probably “In Christ Alone“, but also sing traditional ones. The style is Irish (similar to Blue Grass), sometimes with quick tempo accompanied by step dancing like in “River Dance“. They were backed by a 9-person band, playing a variety of musical instruments including the bodhran (drum), fiddle, flute, harp and uilleann pipes (bagpipes).

In Christ Alone:

What Grace is Mine (Londonderry Air):

Often contemporary worship and praise songs are criticized as repeating a few lines over and over again without much depth. I’m glad to know that this couple’s music have rich theological content and are drawing young and old back to God and the church. Listen to it. May be you’ll like it and point people to Christ too.
