In 2009, veteran Gospel singer Larrice Byrd joined the legendary Fairfield Four as the baritone singer. Founded in Nashville in 1921, the Fairfield Four is today an institution in African American Gospel Music. As part of the 2020 Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program, Larrice taught apprentice Quileo White the full Fairfield Four style. For Quileo, a multifaceted instrumentalist and singer in many musical styles, quartet singing reconnects him to his family legacy, as his great grandfather Willie Lewis sang with the group for a time.
