Fontanna Sunset brings to you an all Gospel Show at the historic Cumming School House auditorium, “The Cumming Playhouse”
One of our very own born and raised here in Cumming GA has a legacy of generations of family and friends who play country and bluegrass music. Put these in the hands of somebody with undying love of bluegrass and vocal talent to match, and you have singer Frances Westray-Mooney.
Frances grew up in a musical family, her mother Ruth Looper-Westray and father, Roy Westray would play at various school auditoriums, Radio shows and even house concerts. Frances didn't show interest until around 17 years of age her uncle Gary Looper taught her to play guitar and that's where it all began.
In the early 70's Frances along with Gary formed their first band, "Bluegrass Generation" which took them to Louisville KY performing many states into Canada at festivals, amusement parks, state fairs and clubs.
Frances and her band has been nominated several times for Bass player, Vocal Group and Female Vocalist of the year with Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) and the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA).
