Recording Artists Keith and Kristyn Getty to Perform at JBU

Siloam Springs, Ark. (September 9, 2009) — John Brown University will welcome recording artists Keith and Kristyn Getty for a free concert on Tuesday, Sept. 15, in the Cathedral of the Ozarks. The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. concert, and admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

The married couple writes and records modern hymns to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary Christian music. Kristyn’s soprano voice and Keith’s piano accompaniment combined for a collection of hymns on their first album, “In Christ Alone,” in 2006. The duo’s second hymnal album, “Awaken the Dawn,” was released this June. Both the couple’s records are under their own label, Gettymusic.

While both Keith and Kristyn were raised in Northern Ireland, the two live and write their music in the United States.
