The trio records under the label "Spiritwood Music Inc.," which can be found at

They have performed in Fergus Falls for the past seven years at festivals and churches and have also done the worship service at the Phelps Mill festival.

Donna is a performance artist in sign language for the deaf, "and that is a combination of American Sign Language, dance, and mime and brings out the meaning and the emotion in Pat's songs very dramatically," she said.

They have recorded 15 CDs to date, most of them containing Christian and inspirational music, said Donna.

"We are Christian. We consider our music 'Bridge Music,' as we are in the world and access folks from many cultures and beliefs weekly at the venues we play, many of them attended by thousands of people. Non-Christians are drawn to my husband's music because it is soothing and inspiring, and we have been able to impact many people who are lost," she said.

Their most recent album, "House Of Amazing Grace," is constructed to get spirits soaring, she said.

There is no admittance fee to the show, and a free will offering will be taken with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Minnesota/North Dakota Alzheimer's Association.
