The Paschall Brothers - "God Said He Would Move..." [Live at Smithsonian Folklife Festival 2007]
The Paschall Brothers perform "God Said He Would Move / On the Right Road Now" at the 2007 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. The song is featured on 'On the Right Road Now,' out via Smithsonian Folkways on CD and digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: Spotify: The Tidewater style of a cappella gospel is one of several regional styles that took root in the American South and eastern states after the Civil War. These groups have always been called quartets even though they could have six or more members: The word quartet refers to the fact that the groups sing in four-part harmony. Formed in 1981 under the leadership of Frank Paschall Sr., the Paschall Brothers perform classic Tidewater repertoire along with original compositions. The Paschall Brothers add their own flair to these pieces, expanding harmonic structure and creating distinct arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original while creating a passionate sound that is uniquely theirs.
