Breaking news on our house concert on Friday, November 22 at 7:00:
It's a triple bill at a new location!
Sarah Masen, Julie Lee and Corrie Covell, on their Lift it Up Tour, will now be joined by an incredible rock bank from Australia, goodbyemotel. [see their music video] The band's music has been featured in Chrysler commercials as well as TV shows such as Gossip Girl, Covert Affairs, and Suits. Our own Will Marsh will open the show.
All of that is to say it's going to be amazing...SO amazing that we're moving to a larger space!
Sarah Masen is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville whose music has been featured on the TV show Party of Five. You can download a free song from her most recent album The Trying Mark by clicking here. When discussing the origin of The Trying Mark, Masen says that "for two years I have had this confessional symbol [of the trying mark] before me as a kind of totem that returns my wandering energies toward center. The fear and frustration of 'I can’t do my longing justice and feed my children' is somehow compassionately softened by the trying anyway at both, each day. As I have meditated on the symbol, words like “enough” and phrases like “I don’t know” steady me, redirecting my attention to that mystery within which I live and move and have my being. The songs in this collection point to that unknown country the trying marks."
Julie Lee is also a singer-songwriter based in Nashville that is known as a "scrapbook of various traditional American styles." She has opened for Alison Krauss and her new album Till and Mule comes out November 19. You can hear some of the new songs on her website julielee.org.
