Two members of the Dixie Echoes announced yesterday via Facebook that they are leaving (Hat tip, Daniel).
Pianist Stewart Varnado resigned the group in early May. Then, yesterday, both Michael Helwig and Mike Jennings announced their departures from the group both via Facebook posts.
Michael Helwig, tenor for the group, started last August. He has not announced future plans yet.
Mike Jennings was the bass for the group and started at the end of the July 2011. He and his wife are expected another baby and wants to spend more time at home.
With all these recent group changes, I hope that the Dixie Echoes will find the right people to fill these positions and continue in their ministry. It will be interesting to see how they regroup. I certainly wish the best for all those involved and praying for all.
