An Evening with Carrie Newcomer
Sacred Stones Ministries invites you to join us at Swallow Hill Music (71 E. Yale Ave., Denver) on Friday, April 7, 8:00 p.m. for a concert by Carrie Newcomer. Tickets are $21 each, with $2 of each ticket going to Sacred Stones Ministries’ Scholarship Fund.
In case Carrie Newcomer is new to you, she is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “soaring songstress” by Billboard and a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. The Austin Statesman described her as having “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate” and Rolling Stone once said, she “asks all the right questions.” Most simply put, the Dallas Morning News said, “she’s the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, ‘that is so true.'”
Newcomer, a contemplative Quaker, cuts across secular and spiritual boundaries. In recent years, Newcomer has emerged as a prominent voice for progressive spirituality, social and environmental justice. Carrie internationally facilitates workshops and presents keynotes on the topics of songwriting, spirituality & vocation in secular, college/educational and spiritual settings.
Join us for a wonderful evening of music! To reserve your ticket or if you have questions, contact Nani Arning (Nani@SacredStonesMinistries.org or 719-330-9216).
