The Sky Family’s On A Mission To Save Souls

Bookmark and Share

By Tyron Sean

More than 11 years ago The Sky Family embarked on a soul saving mission. Not hearing what they wanted to hear on gospel radio or Christian music broadcasts, this musical clan from Prince Edward Island, Canada, set about writing and recording their own songs of praise. The road their Lord then placed them upon, over the years, they'd re-travel again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and yet again. Sum up all the agains [sic], then add 1 for the first year they took their message out and on the road and you'll agree that that's 11 years. Just do the addition.

Now that we've taken care of the math we can set our ciphering aside and discuss the group and their music. There are 6 members that make up the Sky Family combo. There's 1 father, 3 sons, 1 daughter and then there's Dan. Dan is married to Miriam who is Tom's daughter. If you have any affinity for algebraic equations then you may have already deduced that Tom is the aforementioned father in band. Thus, employing the associative principle, you may also conclude that Tom is also the farther of Seth, Gabe and Joel, ergo, the sons.

Tom and Gabe play the guitars while Seth handles the bass. Joel fiddles the violin. Miriam plays the keyboards, so that would leave Dan on the Drums. Other instruments that get tossed back and forth in this soul saving sextet are woodwinds, horns and various percussion devices. They all appear to be sufficiently able to carry a tune and apparently, with the exception of Seth and Dan, they all partake in an Irish River Dance style of dancing. Seth doesn't dance because the others won't let him and Dan, well I imagine it's because he's sitting behind his drum kit. What they all do in common is they all save souls.

You don't have to be Albert Einstein to figure out that the Sky Family's music communicates the message of Christianity. "Celtic Revival! 2017 Gold Edition" is the 2nd in the series of their "Celtic Revival!" albums. It includes songs of worship with titles such as "Psalm 150", "In His Hand", "Who Is Like Him", "Life on the Hedge "Blossom", "Washed Clean", "Send Down The Rain", "Lift Him Up" and many more. In fact, there are a grand total of 14 tracks that are compiled within the "Celtic Revival! 2017 Gold Edition" collection.

The album contains not only lyrical works but also a fair number of instrumentals. Those would be compositions like "Eye of the Storm", "Facing the Gale", "Every Tear", "The Cossack", and "Life on the Hedge". All the tunes, with or without a singer, have a distinctive Celtic styling. On some of them you may even be able to detect the sound of the Sky Family's dancing feet (with the exception of Dan's and Seth's, of course).

At least once a year for the past 11 years the Sky Family (http://www.theskys.org) have loaded up their instruments in various vehicles and gone out on church and festival tours all across the USA and Canada to play their music, dance, share their message, and without question, to save souls. It's their mission, it's their life, and when you're in the soul saving business - no souls get left behind. Amen.
