      **Alabama Expereince: No Detours In Heaven
      Sunday, November 12, 2006 12:30PM APT
      The Sullivan Family of St. Stephens, Ala., has been playing
      old-fashioned string band and bluegrass music for half a century. These
      self-described "country people" see their music not simply as
      entertainment or art, but as a ministry, one started by the Pentecostal
      preacher Arthur Sullivan, who mobilized his siblings and children to
      provide music at revivals and brush arbor churches he pastored in the
      40s. Though today the Sullivans play at major festivals, their
      repertoire still contains only gospel messages -- no "worldly" songs.
      "No Detours In Heaven" explores the cultural values embodied by the
      family's music and lifestyle.
