The opry regulars in the quartet are Daryl Mosley and Tim Graves.

Playing the Dobro is Grammy Award winner Tim Graves. During his more than 30 years of performing professionally, Graves has spent 20 of them on the Opry. He has toured throughout the United States with his own group and is the reigning Dobro Player of the Year for the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America. He has held the distinction seven times.

Rounding out the foursome are guitarist/tenor singer Jody Elmore and banjoist and harmony vocalist Devon Avery.

The concert will feature new songs and gospel classics. There is no admission charge, but a love offering will be accepted.
