The Primitive Quartet

Gospel songs have been an integral part of the bluegrass genre since its very first days, and within a few short years, groups appeared which devoted themselves exclusively to songs of faith delivered in bluegrass settings. In 1973, The Primitive Quartet took its place in the ranks of bluegrass gospel artists, and over the nearly 50 years that have followed, the durable group has made its way to the forefront.

In October, The Primitive Quartet and Mountain Home Music Company released Through The Years Volumes 1 and 2, the start of a groundbreaking series that’s bringing the beloved gospel group’s music to new generations of listeners through streaming services and digital sales platforms for the first time. This holiday, the series continues with Through The Years Christmas, out now.
