West Virginia’s Premier Southern Gospel & Bluegrass Concert Series
Announcing our 2018 Series
Press Release: AMT Announces Move of Southern Gospel & Bluegrass Concert Series to East Fairmont High School for 2018
The American Mountain Theater, now AMT PRODUCTIONS, is moving its star-studded Southern Gospel & Bluegrass Concert Series to Fairmont, West Virginia for 2018. The 2018 series will be the tenth anniversary year for these highly successful concerts featuring national recording artists and we are excited to announce the new venue. The 2018 concerts will be held at the East Fairmont High School Auditorium located at 1993 Airport Road, Fairmont, WV 26554. This new venue is conveniently located only 1.25 miles from Interstate 79. The auditorium is a beautiful 814 seat facility with comfortable seating and a large theater style stage. This is about 300 seats larger than the previous venue in Elkins, West Virginia, and as a result, more people will be able to comfortably enjoy seeing these national stars. We also believe that this new venue will bring the concerts closer to many of the fans who have been traveling to Elkins for the past 9 years. READ MORE

Jeff and Sheri Easter – Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 2:30 PM
For Jeff and Sheri, gospel music is genetically programmed into their DNA. As members of acclaimed musical families they grew up surrounded by the sound of people praising God through their musical gifts. They traveled and performed as part of The Lewis Family for several years, but in 1988 they decided it was time to strike out on their own. They haven’t looked back since. Jeff and Sheri have been nominated for numerous Dove Awards and won six. They’ve also received numerous other awards, including two career Grammy nominations. They are regulars on the Gaither Homecoming tour and videos. Sheri says, “When we perform, we want people to leave a little different than when they came in. We want them to have a great time smiling, laughing, crying and healing. We want them to know God loves them and that He is in control.”
