Direct from Scotland, Bruce Davies, the Fife-based and internationally acclaimed singer/song-writer/guitarist, will be performing a concert at West Emory Presbyterian Church, Knoxville on Sunday, March 26th at 7:00 pm.
A professional musician for over 31 years, Bruce has a wealth of experience in every conceivable performance situation. His work in Churches not only entertains, but also inspires and encourages audiences of all Faiths and none.
He is an award-winning singer/songwriter with an ‘easy on the ear’ style and during the Summer season is host and singer for Edinburgh’s premier Scottish Variety show, 'The Spirit of Scotland'. His career highlights include: - 2 concerts at the United Nations, New York, Edinburgh Fringe and Folk Festivals; most of Scotland’s top hotels; Wolftrap, Washington DC and the Bluebird Café, Nashville, TN.
He has made many television and radio appearances, including BBC Songs of Praise with Isla St Clair and has seven albums currently available, including the latest, ‘I Have Found Peace’, which is the first to showcase songs exclusively relating to his Faith.
Bruce is delighted to be back in East Tennessee for the first time since 2009. Although this is only his second appearance at West Emory Presbyterian Church, he is no stranger to East Tennessee. He made many friends during his five appearances at the Gatlinburg Scottish Festival and Games as well as with his appearances in other Churches in the area, and on Channel 10. He looks forward to repeating the success of his previous visits.
Love Offerings will be taken to assist families and businesses affected by the recent Gatlinburg Wildfires. Proceeds after expenses will be donated to the Presbytery's East TN Disaster Relief fund.

“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
So...here’s the deal. I am hoping that our brief touch of winter is over and spring is really here to stay. I mean, really. The flowers are blooming; the birds singing; allergies beginning. What other signs do we need that change is bursting forth all around us? But then, we never know about the weather, do we?
We do know that the Season of Lent is upon us beginning with Ash Wednesday and continuing through Holy Week and Easter. I invite you to take this time of Lent for personal reflection and prayer and be with your church family in worship.
I am looking forward to our Lenten Sermon Series on “24 Hours That Changed the World.” I am also delighted that my friend, Bruce Davies, will be vacationing in our area from Scotland and be in concert here on Sunday, March 26th at 7 pm.
It won’t be long before the laughter of children will fill the air as our new playground begins to take shape. I hope you will take a moment and celebrate with me the many wonderful accomplishments of our congregation noted in the Annual Report. We truly are blessed to be a blessing.
