The Gospel Concert will feature the Woodsmen Quartet and along with the Childress Family on May 4 at 2 p.m. (CDT) at the 1500-seat, covered Lincoln Amphitheatre.  

“Many of our guests have asked us to consider presenting a concert of gospel music at the Lincoln Amphitheatre, so we are very pleased to be able to offer such a great concert by these high-quality performers. The performances are sure to be entertaining and uplifting to guests of all ages and would make a great spring outing for churches and youth groups.” says Lincoln Amphitheatre executive director Dan Wilkinson.

Based out of Batesville, the Woodsmen Quartet was founded in 2004 by Tim Woods along with Scott Joss, Josh Arnett, and Steve Waggoner. The Woodsmen Quartet has shared the stage with gospel musicians such as The Gold City, The Kingsmen, Dixie Melody Boys, and Dove Brothers.

The 1500-seat, roofed Lincoln Amphitheatre is located in Lincoln City, Indiana, just four miles from Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. It is home to the signature musical play A.Lincoln: A Pioneer Tale, about Abraham Lincoln’s Indiana years. Lincoln grew up in Indiana from the ages of seven to 21 and the amphitheatre sits on the grounds where he grew up.
