Gospel tour 2009, Sept 3-Oct 21. Primarily to give outsiders access to the inspiring black gospel tradition, Tony Backhouse takes tours to the USA every two years. In 2009, he will be leading a group of singers, music teachers and choir directors to Memphis, Chicago and New York to immerse themselves in the black gospel traditions: quartet programs, church services, choir rehearsals, festivals, viewing archival film footage, and themselves performing at these events. Tony has been studying and researching a cappella gospel traditions for 25 years. His choir, the Café of the Gate of Salvation, toured the US in 1999.
