Neal Cantrell, Baritone

Neal lives in Pickens, and, since he is retired, he spends some of his time looking for and downloading new music for the quartet.  Neal has always loved music, especially Southern Gospel and Bluegrass Gospel. Besides singing with the quartet, Neal enjoys singing in the church choir and writing and recording his own songs.





Mark Pilgrim, Bass

Mark lives in Six Mile, and he enjoys southern gospel music.  Along with singing in the quartet he also sings in the choir. There have been several family members that have a huge background in singing, from old convention styles to southern gospel. All of these factors have made a big impression and ignited the desire to follow his heart. He believes that there is a message in all of the music. Take time to read the lyrics and hear the message.  The Cathedral Quartet (George Younce) has been a big inspiration.
