Butter Queen SisterButter Queen Sister is a folk trio whose rich sound is infused with country, bluegrass and a bit of the blues. Lead singer and songwriter Rebecca Lang Fiorentino delivers melodies that are as memorable as they are beautiful in her distinctive, sweet and clear voice.  When not anchoring songs with her guitar, Rebecca picks up her violin and provides another emotional voice to the arrangement.  Though playing in a folk style, her classical training shines through.  Butter Queen SisterThese original songs feature simple and heartfelt lyrics on life and love, which at times capture a classic folk sensibility.  Harry Gambrill, a versatile musician, accompanies Rebecca on dobro, banjo, mandolin and harmony vocals.  Harry’s tasty picking is just what the doctor ordered, adding texture and rhythm with a bluegrass & country vibe. Harry brings a couple of his amazing, original bluegrass tunes to the set which allows BQS great opportunities to jam. Mike McLane adds superb bass and occasional harmony on various tunes! From ballads to Americana folk-rockers to bluegrass foot-stompers, Butter Queen Sister’s consistently catchy songs appeal to a range of musical tastes. A serving of BQS helps to stir the soul.

Out of Darkness Out of Darkness sprung to life in the early part of 2016 but it was many years ago when a mutual friend introduced the three at a church in Springfield, PA where Fran was pastoring. Many years had passed before they met again to form Out of Darkness. Rich, who is primarily a drummer and quickly learning guitar, began playing drums at the ripe old age of 11. Lisa has been performing since she was 12 years old and Fran has been playing guitar for over 40 years. One thing these three have in common: Their desire to honor the Lord with their music began around the same time.

The name, Out of Darkness describes Rich, Lisa and Fran’s lives in that once they were blind but now they see. God has taken them from darkness to light and “out of the darkness” and their desire is to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as they journey through life on earth, through music and through conversation. Most of their music is Christ-centered and they also perform some popular hit songs from their youth.

Out of Darkness includes: Rich Small: Drums, Guitar, Vocals / Lisa Small: Vocals / Fran Sankey: Guitar, Vocals
