Tennessee Backporch at the Mount

The Benedictine Sisters were treated to a wonderful experience when Tennessee Backporch chose to do their dress rehearsal at the monastery for the upcoming show. Tennessee Backporch, Erie’s “premier variety band,” welcomes additional musicians for this special production. The show, created by Chris and Julie Moore, founding members of the band, showcases a number of original songs, many by Chris himself, as well as creative arrangements of familiar Christmas songs.

“Chris and Julie said how pleased they were to be able to perform here for us but the pleasure was surely ours,” said Sister Anne Wambach, Prioress. “The entire program lifted my heart.” Sister Marilyn Schauble added, “Amazing─it was simply amazing. This group is so talented and so willing to share their gifts. They were wonderful.”
