Topics will include sound, lighting, production, and performance techniques. Workshop facilitators are professionals who have set-up for a broad range of event types and in multiple venues. Day one will focus on event lighting, day two on live sound, and day three on recording.

Lawson’s group is the reigning Inspirational Country Music Association Vocal Group of the Year, crowned in October at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, on the heels of Lawson’s induction into the IBMHF at the Ryman Auditorium in September 2012.
