The Duhks at Roots Revival Stage
On July 9, we welcome The Duhks to the Roots Revival Stage, the free community concert series component of our Wednesday night worship service. The evening will begin at 7:30 with an abbreviated worship service centered on one of their songs, then The Duhks will offer a one-hour concert. This event is free and open to the public, but you'll need to reserve a spot.
The Duhks reunite! Featuring members Jessee Havey, Scott Senior, Tania Elizabeth, Jordan McConnell, and founder Leonard Podolak, "Canada's premier neo-tradsters romp from world-beat to blues, urban-pop to old-timey, with wild-eyed invention, haunting traditionalism, and spine-rattling groove." (Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe) GRAMMY nominees and JUNO award winners, seeing The Duhks live is nothing short of a spiritual experience. A syncopated bluesy banjo number seamlessly follows a Brazilian samba; an old-time jaunt nestles comfortably next to a gospel performance by vocalist Jessee Havey - her soulful voice piercing like the heart tattoo on her chest. One of the most musically adventurous bands to come from the roots scene in the past decade, The Duhks return to the stage is definitely a cause for celebration.
Roots Revival is a service of worship grounded in Americana/roots-based music at Centenary United Methodist Church. We strive to be an open space for people to engage in a participatory worship experience. Each service is centered on one or more "focus songs" and an accompanying Bible passage that drive the theme of the evening. We use everything from old hymns and spirituals to songs by Leonard Cohen, Mumford and Sons, Gillian Welch, U2, and more. We meet each Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. Roots Revival Stage is our community concert series, which has featured Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Jonathan Byrd, Dar Williams, The Amigos, and David Holt.
