Rock on the Mount – May 26, 2007

Rock on the Mount was an annual festival that supported various non-profit organizations. The inaugural event featured artists mostly performing for the first time. It was a small intimate affair. Over the years, Rock in the Mount would grow steadily. I began writing music in 2006, so this was my musical debut.

  1. Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash)
  2. Belshazzar (Johnny Cash)
  3. I Will Celebrate the Lord (original)
  4. Psalm 40 (original)
  5. Redemption (Johnny Cash)
  6. Peacemakers (original)

I don’t have a recording of the show, but here is a studio version of Peacemakers:
