More About Bill & Gloria Gaither and Their Homecomi
Gaither Homecoming Friends is the name applied to a series of videos, music recordings and concerts, which are organized, promoted and usually presented by Christian music songwriter and impresario Bill Gaither. To date, the Gaither Homecoming title is applied to more than 60 videos, dozens of music recordings, and an annual concert tour that drew more than half a million fans in 2004 (the most recent year for which statistics are available).
On February 19, 1991, the Gaither Vocal Band had just wrapped up a recording session in a Nashville, Tennessee, working on an album called Homecoming, which featured many of the great voices of southern gospel music: The Speers, the Gatlins, Jake Hess, The Cathedrals, Howard & Vestal Goodman, Buck Rambo, Eva Mae Lefevre, James Blackwood, Hovie Lister, Jim Hill, and J.D. Sumner & The Stamps. After the session, the artists stayed around to chat, swap stories and sing old standards around the piano. The impromptu session was recorded on video and later published. The recording was so well received that Gaither began a series of professionally-produced videos with larger gatherings of gospel musicians.
Today Bill & Gloria Gaither and their Homecoming Friends is a favorite staple of Gospel Music audiences around the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Homecoming: Homecoming Picnic?
Family, Food, Music, Fun and a campfire! May 9, 2010
A departure from the usual Homecoming concerts, this is a celebration of family, Homecoming Picnic 2008. The picnic at the historic Fiddler's Grove in Lebanon, Tennessee is all in the name of a family event. You will hear how many speak just how much this concert/picnic setting means to them, seeing friends who are like family.
Many new singers are here along with a few of the old timers, like Russ Taff, Lynda Randle, Larry Ford, and Dottie Rambo "Mama Teaching Angels to Sing". Dottie must have died shortly after in May 2008. The Speer Family join in for a tribute to Brock Speer who died in 1999. Ben Speer sings "I Was There When it Happened."
Some performances that stood out for me were the Gaither Vocal Band singing a very beautiful song, "I Heard it First on the Radio". I figured it was Gaither-written because I remember Bill talking about his experience listening to the gospel on the radio Turn Your Radio On; and I like "He Pilots My Ship" with Buddy Mullins and "Farther Along" with Michael English.
You will enjoy the rousing "Sweetest Song I Know" lead by Mike Allen, Russ Taff, Ben Speer, Becky Isaacs, Johnny Minick, Michael English and Jessy Dixon. I especially enjoy "This Great Caravan Keeps on Rolling Along" and "I'm Living in Canaan Now."
Other performances include: Gordon Mote "Sweet Forgiveness"; TaRanda Green sings "Sky Full of Angels"; and two favorites, and Larry Ford leads for "Palms of Victory"; The Booth Brothers sing "Without the Lord"; The Easters sing "Eastern Gate"; Jim Hill sings "What a Day That Will Be"; and Tanya Sykes "Look for Me"; and several join in for "I'm a Soldier"
Harmonica player Buddy Greene plays "Gentle Shepherd/I Will Serve Thee and along with the Isaacs for "Sally Goodin/Wildwood Flower." Newcomers The Hayes Family sing "Did You Ever Go Sailin".
This is a fun Homecoming Series, casual without an audience and you get to meet some family members. This is fun! Inside pamphlet has lyrics.... Rizzo

This was a very enjoyable video, as it brought a sense of knowing the people in everyday life, and enhanced watching and listening to the wonderful music.
Homecoming picnic Jan 12, 2009
This is one of the Gaithers best Video's yet outside of the ones with the Goodmans and Jake and some of the other one's that are gone on. Bill Gaither goes out of the way just to make sure that not only does the music sound good but he also makes sure that all the artists are having a real good time. Wish I could sit in with them and sing one with the gang. Keep up the Good Work Bill and Gloria
GOOD FAMILY TIME ENTERTAINMENT Aug 18, 2008

I got this video along with Campfire Homecoming on the 4th day after order was placed. The packaging was exceptional. Two of the best Gaither videos in recent years. I will buy from Nickalucks again!
