Cabinteely Gospel Group (CGG) have been singing since the group was set up in September 1999, with over thirty members of all ages, coming from both the local parish and further afield.
CGG love to blend Gospel music covering styles from a traditional Soul and Blues-style Gospel, from artists such as Aretha Franklin through to Country Gospel to the 90’s and 00’s “Hip-Hop” or “Urban” Gospel of artists such as Mary Mary and Eva Cassidy. They also enjoy singing songs from Rock and Pop artists who have released chart topping tracks with spiritual themes including Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Beyoncé.
