Wetzel Chronicle

The Ebert Brothers Family and Friends Christmas Show is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Lincoln Theater in downtown New Martinsville. Headlining the show will be The Carriers.

Poised with the task of sharing the Gospel through the ministry of song, The Carriers were formed in 1969. During much of the 1970s into the 80s, the group traveled the east coast, playing hundreds of engagements each year - from Maine to Florida.

Six decades later, the realization of The Carriers' ambition continues. Their message has remained the same: sharing the good news through the universal medium of music. The group is a joy to listen to, exciting to watch, entertaining, yet serious about the message of Christ.

From old standards to original songs, the music of The Carriers is a blend of smooth harmonies, great arrangements, and amazing solo voices and is embraced by gospel music lovers of all ages.

The Carriers sing in a wide variety of venues that include churches, fairs, and festivals.

The Carriers encourage folks to listen for and request their music on their favorite Gospel music radio stations. The group can be followed on Facebook, Instagram, and on their website:
