The College of Fine Arts at SFA will present The Isaacs in a special Encore Event concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, in W.M. Turner Auditorium. The concert is sponsored in part by BancorpSouth.
The multi-Dove Award-winning and two-time (2017 and ’18) Grammy-nominated family of gospel singers, The Isaacs have an inspirational style that blends tight harmonies with contemporary acoustic instrumentation to produce a sound that appeals to audiences all over the world.
“Their unique mix of southern gospel and other sounds is heard regularly at the Grand Ole Opry and at Carnegie Hall, CMA Fan Fest and recently on ABC-TV’s CMA Country Christmas with superstar Reba McIntyre,” said Scott Shattuck, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and director of the University Series and Encore Events.
The Isaacs began singing 35 years ago and include mother Lily Isaacs and siblings Ben Isaacs, Sonya Isaacs Yeary and Rebecca Isaacs Bowman. Playing their own acoustic instruments and joined by other band members, The Isaacs’ distinctive style has been influenced by many genres of music including rhythm and blues, bluegrass and folk, as well as country, contemporary, acoustic and southern gospel.
