This Harrisburg-based ensemble is not your typical gospel group!

A diverse group of eight men, they come from all walks of life and each bring their own musical and spiritual experiences to the group. It's a men's fellowship that delivers the Word of God through music that's not your typical gospel. Their repertoire ranges from early spirituals through R&B and Soul music, even pulling in reggae beats and pop sounds, and includes a lot of collaboratively-written originals.

The Spiritual Messengers draw on their own experiences and the Word of God to inspire others to love and respect themselves and their community. With originals like “Take the Children Back” and “Clean Up,” they are creating social change through music, carrying on the tradition that inspired the Freedom Songs of the Civil Rights Movement.

The “Bringing it Home” series is a project of our Susquehanna Folk Arts Center which is created in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Meet more amazing artists from Central PA in our Folk Artists Gallery.
