The Covalts are a family gospel singing group from Central PA. They make their home in Spring Mills. They have been traveling and singing for 62 years, since 1953. There have been many changes through the years as members married and moved on. The original group members were Merrill (Pap), Christine(Grandma), and sons, Tony (Dad) and Mark. They traveled as a quartet with Tony playing the guitar. Their daughters: Amy, Dolly and Sue traveled as a trio with them. In later years it was Merrill, Christine, Tony and Sue that made up the quartet. They traveled through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. As children and grandchildren have come and grown through the years, The Covalts are still singing. Today The Covalts consist of three of Tony's children: Jody, Mike and Holly. Holly plays keyboard, Mike's son Eli plays drums/bass and Jon Musser and Stan Truckenmiller play guitars. At times you may see some of Jody's, Mike's and Holly's children come up on stage and sing as well.
