GospelFest Ministries also offers a variety of professional, musical services. Shawn has a bachelor’s degree in music theory & composition and uses that to create beautiful choral and instrumental arrangements for not only local churches, but also many different artists and publishers. “Convention Hallelujahs!” and “Heaven’s Jubilee: the Songs of G.T. Dad Speer and the Speer Family” are two shape-note convention books that Shawn has published, the latter having appeared in the Gaither product catalog. Most recently, Shawn completed work editing and typesetting a 50-song book for Daywind artist Brian Free & Assurance as well as typesetting a songbook for the Collingsworth Family. The Ruppes, Stephen Hill, the Chuck Wagon Gang, Judy Nelon, and Phil Cross have also utilized Shawn for various projects.
Very soon, Shawn will begin releasing arrangements for church choir featuring great old convention songs as well as current southern gospel hits. These will be available through GospelFest Ministries. If you’d like to publish a songbook, or need an arrangement or orchestration for your choir or group, please contact GospelFest Ministries and we’d be honored to help you.
