Boggy River Bluegrass Band to play at Konawa church

ADA — Boggy River Bluegrass Band will play and sing at Cross Timbers Church in Konawa at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 4, during the church’s Morning of Worship in Song. It is a special day to honor the anniversary of the pastor, Ed Bray.

Boggy River consists of five talented musicians. Each one does his or her part to make the band’s special sound. The band started playing together in 1984 and still has three of its original members — James Summers, Joe Wilson and Paul Morgan.

James Summers, Allen, plays guitar and sings. Joe Wilson, Gerty, plays mandolin. Paul Morgan, Shawnee, is known as “grandpa” of the group. He started playing guitar at age of 13 and now plays guitar and sings lead. Garland Blocker, Seminole, plays banjo and sings lead and harmony. He has a Ralph Stanley mix with a little bit of Earl Scruggs sound. Jennifer Blocker plays bass for the group and puts variety into the singing.

Cross Timbers Church is located at 320 E. Main in Konawa.
