Rushing Wind Ministries will present Righteous Revival in concert at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday at Main Street Auditorium in Cumberland.

Righteous Revival is a group of musicians that first played together over 40 years ago, reuniting in 2014 to play original Christian music. Their approach is unique taking the blues/rock style of music they cut their teeth on in the 1970s and incorporating it into the songs they now perform. The result is a fusion of contemporary Christian music and classic rock.

The members of the group all hail from Harlan County originally. Three of the guys in the band still live there. Since reuniting, the band has performed at churches and festivals in Kentucky and Virginia.

Band members include: Randy Adams, of Lynch, the group’s lead vocalist; Ross Bailey, of Evarts, bass player for the band; Millard “Junie” Caldwell Jr., of Knoxville, Tennessee, guitar player; Tim Cooper, of Big Stone Gap, Virginia, plays keyboards for band and is also an ordained minister; Rick Jones, of Harlan, is the drummer; and Alan Wagers, of Frankfort, plays guitar.

Mike Blair, pastor of the Cumberland Pentecostal Church, and his daughters, Wendy and Heather, along with Marvin Goins, of Lynch, will be guest performers at the concert.

Tickets are $7, at the door; or $5, advance tickets (on sale now at LampHouse Coffee (Lynch), Buffy’s Lazy Daisy (Cumberland), Pine Mountain Outfitters (Whitesburg) and Abraham Music (Harlan). Concessions will be available.
