Daryl Mosley is an award-winning singer, songwriter, and Grand Ole Opry, musician. If Mosley's name sounds familiar, it might be that you recognize it from his time touring as the lead singer of the bluegrass group New Tradition all through the 1990s. Or perhaps Mosley's name rings a bell from the time he spent as part of the legendary Osborne Brothers in the early 2000s. It was in 2010 when Mosley formed the band "The Farm Hands" and it became one of the most award-winning bands in bluegrass.

Not only has Mosley had his toes dipped deep into country and bluegrass music, but he has also written southern gospel songs including "(Ask the Blind Man) He Saw It All." Bill Gaither is a gospel music legend best known for his Bill Gaither Trio and he speaks highly of Mosley, describing him as being "a poet and we don't have many poets left."

Mosley has a way of telling a story through song and that incredible skill has made him the recipient of being twice honored as Songwriter of the Year, landing seven number one songs on the music charts, and picking up three Song of the Year awards.

If you would like to enjoy an evening listening to Mosley, his free concert will be held at Skinners Eddy United Methodist Church which is located at 10424 State Route 6 in Laceyville, Pennsylvania. The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. this Friday, April 8. While admission is free and open to the public, a love offering will be taken.
