In conjunction with Nashville's Festival of Homiletics, Tokens Show comes to First Baptist Church in Downtown Nashville on May 16. |
We're excited to announce that Andrew Peterson will be joining us on May 16 for our next Tokens. We've got about 30 tickets left, as of March 26. Tickets will be made available via our website soon.
What is Tokens?
It is, we hasten to say, a sort of delight better experienced than described. So unlike anything else, one can only get at it through metaphor: something like Mark Twain with all his satire, wit, and social conscience meeting God and actually liking the God he meets. Or Thomas Merton monk, author, and activist playing banjo. Or Garrison Keillor being cross-bred with Bill Moyers.
TOKENS is part great music, part university lecture, part cultural analysis, and part good conversation, featuring Nashville's finest musicians and songwriters, provocative interviews with best-selling authors, all mixed up with enough humor and satire to keep things ever lively.
"Breaking down false dichotomies one episode at a time," we like to say, TOKENS opens dialogue between artists and historians, storytellers and scholars, comedians and activists; makes space for bluegrass and classical on the same stage; and brings all sorts of folks and genres together in a sort of unexpected back-porch kind of feel, in which the whole always turns out being more than the sum of the parts.
