McKameys

Marion’s Lincoln Theatre will present gospel group The McKameys in concert May 11.

The McKameys, a family group based out of Clinton, Tenn., will be in concert on Saturday, May 11, at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Theatre in Marion.

Entering into their sixth decade of spreading God’s message through their music, the McKameys announced in 2018 that November of 2019 would be the end of their full-time touring.

The group began as three sisters and has undergone changes throughout the years. One of those original sisters, Peg McKamey Bean, is joined by her husband, Ruben, their daughter, Connie Fortner, her husband, Roger Fortner, their son, Elijah Fortner, and Sheryl Farris, the Beans’ younger daughter.

The group is known for performing “Right On Time,” “I’ve Won,” “Unspoken Request,” “There Is Jesus,” and their signature song, “God on the Mountain.” The McKameys play about 130 days a year, traveling throughout North America.

The group has been awarded several different Singing News fan awards through the years and Ruben and Peg Bean are both recipients of the Marvin Norcross Award and the Norcross/Templeton Award, respectively. In 2016, Peg McKamey Bean was inducted into The Southern Gospel Music Hall Of Fame.

Tickets start at $20 and are available through the Lincoln Theatre’s box office by calling 276-783-6092 and online at www.thelincoln.org.
