Tim & the Glory Boys were a huge hit at the Altona EMM Church on April 6, as part of their Buffalo Road Show.
The tour takes them across Canada, sharing a wide selection of traditional gospel tunes, along with many of their signature songs which have earned them multiple JUNO, Dove and Covenant Awards.
They also shared their new single “Blessed” which is a departure from their normal sound and takes on more of a country flare, and carries a powerful message of remembering your roots and appreciating what you have.
All four of the band members hail from Manitoba, so returning back to their roots made this particular appearance extra special, says band front man, Tim Neufeld.
“We always have a wonderful time in Altona,” Neufeld says. “We love the people here. There’s a lot of Mennonites here. I’m also Mennonite, so it feels like coming home.”
He says they were treated to all of their favourite traditional foods while they were in town. “We’re stuffed. It was absolutely great!”
Their tour includes a charitable aspect, encouraging fans to become child sponsors through World Vision.
“We went to see some of the refugee camps supported by World Vision in Uganda, Bidi-Bidi and West Nile this past summer in an effort to raise awareness and encourage sponsorship. It was really eye-opening and it’s been amazing to be a part of helping that cause. After being there and seeing it with our own eyes, it’s hard not to make it part of our show.”
