Advent House Concert with Ordinary Time

  • Common Grounds 480 Rugby Road Charlottesville, VA, 22903 United States (map)

Please join Theological Horizons, All Souls Cville and Westminster Presbyterian for a contemplative evening of music to prepare us for the Advent and Christmas season. UVa student Dominique DeBose will open.

Ordinary Time is an independent folk acoustic trio rooted in the Christian tradition.  Comprised of Ben Keyes (guitar, piano, mandolin), Peter La Grand (guitar, banjo, dobro), and Jill McFadden (guitar, violin), Ordinary Time presents extraordinarily rich vocal harmonies, skillful instrumentation, and thought-provoking lyrics.  The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs—often indistinguishably—producing a sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred harp hymn arrangements.  The band has released three records and tours semi-annually.

Grounded in tradition, innovative in expression, and mature in musicianship, Ordinary Time offers an important and unique voice, gifting us with enduring tunes for the journey of faith.
