Simple Faith

Simple Faith — clockwise from bottom, Jerry White, Michael Johnson, Ron Scott and Jeff Shadowens — will perform.

With a musical style reminiscent of the 1970s TV show Gospel Singing Jubilee, Simple Faith presents old-school Christian music in four-part harmonies.

The quartet will be the featured performer Friday at the monthly musical celebration at the Farm USA, 7820 Lithia Pinecrest Road. Mike and Denise Holmes have hosted monthly cookout-concert combos at their 11-acre spread near Lithia Pinecrest Road and County Road 39 for nearly five years.

The Farm promises a relaxing evening with friends with burgers, chips and drinks at 6:30 p.m., open mike at 7 and Simple Faith at 8.

Jeff Shadowens, a singer-songwriter, founded the group as a trio in 2007 and it became a quartet in 2012. For Jerry White, another member, the performance will represent something of a homecoming for the Plant City native who grew up singing every Sunday morning on WPLA radio with his maternal grandfather and aunt.

There's no charge for admission or food at the Farm, but donations are appreciated.

For information, visit or call (813) 967-3046.
