Description

Widely celebrated as Virginia’s “First Family of Gospel Music,” The Legendary Ingramettes have been blowing the roof off performance stages for nearly six decades. The Ingramettes were formed by Evangelist “Mama” Maggie Ingram, who passed away in 2015 at the age of 84. But the group has continued to soar, led by the powerfully incomparable singing of her oldest daughter, Almeta Ingram-Miller, who is joined by Maggie’s granddaughter Cheryl Maroney-Yancey and daughter-in-law Carrie Jackson. Backed by their rock-solid, house-shaking rhythm section, the Ingramettes continue to bring the electric energy and spirit of a Sunday morning service to the performance stage, enthralling diverse audiences around the world.

“Mama” Maggie Ingram was born July 4, 1930, on Mulholland’s Plantation in Coffee County, Georgia, where she worked the cotton and tobacco fields as a child. Maggie began playing the piano and singing at an early age and developed a great love for the church and gospel music. In 1961 Maggie moved herself and her five children to Richmond, Virginia, and there created Maggie Ingram and the Ingramettes, among the most beloved family groups in the city’s celebrated gospel tradition.

 

This concert is produced in partnership with Jon Lohman and the Virginia Folklike Program, who brought “Music from the Crooked Road” to the Irvington Theater several years back.
