Hudson – On Saturday, Aug. 18, at 6 :30 p.m., the First United Methodist Church at 34 Felton St., Hudson, invites friends and neighbors from Hudson and surrounding communities to a free Ice Cream Social to be held outside on the church lawn. A concert will follow at 7 p.m. featuring the music duo of Ernie and Jason Couch, direct from Nashville, Tenn.
The Couches will be bringing an exciting mixture of 20th century gospel classics and their own original music. Known across the United States and Canada for their live music, good humor, and genuine spirit; many describe the group as refreshingly different and a lot of fun.
“We want to reach everyone from all age groups and backgrounds, with the message of the music,” Jason Couch said. “We enjoy what we do and want the people to enjoy it just as much. We certainly will give it all we got in the time we have.”
This duo has been traveling the road for almost three decades, presenting a professional evening of music. Besides a Grammy nomination, having a number of songs in the gospel charts both here and abroad, the duo has recorded with such greats as George Beverly Shea, Jake Hess, George Jones, Petra, James Earl Jones, Patti Page and Dallas Holm, to name a few.
Folding chairs will be set up but feel free to bring your own seat or blanket. In case of rain, both events will be held indoors. Donations for the ice cream social and concert will be greatly appreciated.
