Higher Ground


Their #1 goal is to uplift our Savior, Jesus Christ, and help to spread the Good News of the Gospel. In the summer of 2012, after getting together one evening to just "play some music", Kris, Robin, Kent, and Blake began working up a few songs and actually sang at a local church of some family shortly thereafter. They really enjoyed it, and especially, seeing folks get blessed through song. They took a couple more appointments and we soon realized that we needed a group name to associate the band with. The name Higher Ground just kept coming to mind. They truly enjoy playing and singing for the Lord.

Wild Blue Yonder

Wild Blue Yonder

Bio: “I love to tell the story . . . “ Come hear hymns of the faith and mountain
Gospel music in Appalachian style with Wild Blue Yonder. Mandolin, banjo,
guitar, cello, vocals and light percussion combine in an offering of praise to
God and celebration of His goodness. Something of a rootsy string quartet, this
version of WBY honors the rich musical traditions of Appalachia while sharing
lively foot-stomping tunes too. Great fun and inspiration for the whole family
as we share the timeless truths of God’s word in song.

Wild Blue Yonder has performed professionally for more than 20 years
across East Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and Western North Carolina, and
has produced three CDs. Our wide variety of Appalachian music can be heard
on Spotify and other digital platforms.
