Country Spirit provides gospel and country Christian music for our 6 p.m. service on Saturdays. The group features Nancy Lee, vocal/guitar; Torrey Lavik, guitar; Ken Yparella, mandolin; and Alan Davies, string/electric bass. The music is country gospel although the group will do a bit of everything. Lead by Nancy Lee, the group has been playing at Ascension for sixteen years. Nancy has appeared on the cowboy festival circuit, including venues in Big Bear and Santa Clarita. She additionally plays at benefits such as Hospice or the Conejo Valley’s golf tournament awards dinner. She has a CD, “Cowgirl’s Lullabye,” and has a second in progress. A spiritual and Christmas album is planned to follow.
