February 3, 2014 - Gulf Shores, AL (GSA) - Grammy Award winner Jackie Davidson and folk song composer Gary Brandt will be the featured artists on Feb. 13 and 14 at the Gulf Shores United Methodist Church, 1900 Gulf Shores Parkway.

Jackie’s music career began early when she became a church organist at age 15, then off to college at BYU, finally moving to southern California where she joined “The Randy Sparks 3” which later became the Grammy Award winning “New Christy Minstrels.”
She has sung with many well-known entertainers such as Sammy Davis Jr., Tennessee Ernie Ford, Kate Smith and Carol Channing. A career highlight was performing at the White House for President Lyndon Johnson. Appearances on TV shows and commercials also dot her resume.
Gary Brandt, a retired educator and coach, is now a full-time performer, composer and folklorist. Gary’s performing venues include TV-2 Detroit, the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Chrysler Omni Arts and his multi-media program “Land to the West”.
In 2013 Gary created a new program, the “Gordon Lightfoot Tribute Concert”. He carries on the tradition of folk music with a 12-string guitar, a good song, humorous stories and a great voice that reflects the rich tradition of American folk music.
