Carrie Newcomer

Evening Programs
Date and Time: 
Wednesday, July 8, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:45pm

Carrie Newcomer is one of the definitive voices of the heartland and progressive spirituality, with an ability for sharp observation of the world.  Carrie attends Bloomington Friends Meeting (OVYM).

"Newcomer weaves faith and spirituality throughout the stories she tells in her songs, writing about finding the sacred in the supposedly profane; of encountering the spirit of God in places some people say God isn't supposed to be found....It's a job Newcomer performs with elegance, eloquence and grace."- Cathleen Falsani, Chicago Sun-Times

“Carrie Newcomer is the most insightful and lyrical singer-songwriter I know—always attuned to the still, small voice of the soul that’s so often muffled by the noise of the world.”  - Parker J. Palmer
