Event

CARRIE NEWCOMER with pianist Gary Walters
Celebrated singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer will perform in concert at Phippsburg Congregational Church on Sunday, March 31, at 4 p.m.   She will be joined by pianist Gary Walters.

The Grammy-winning songwriter has been described as "a soaring songstress" by Billboard, "a prairie mystic" by the Boston Globe, and Rolling Stone acclaimed her as "rapturously tuneful," adding that her songs "ask all the right questions."  

Carrie has recorded 16 solo albums and has been inducted into The Great American Songbook Foundation, founded by Michael Feinstein.  The Associated Press has said that she "combines a rich voice with equally rich lyrics to weave a tapestry of life and hope."

She has toured extensively throughout U.S. and Europe, and has recorded with Alison Krauss and Mary Chapin Carpenter.  In 2003, Nickel Creek recorded Newcomers "I Should've Known Better" on their gold-selling, Grammy-winning album "This Side."  She was listed as one of the 50 most influential folk musicians of the past 50 years by Chicago's WFMT radio and has been twice named Folk Wax magazine artist and album of the year.  Boston's WUMB radio station included her on their list of the most influential artists of the past 25 years.

Carrie has attracted a devoted following with her warm voice, captivating melodies, and an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world.  Her fans include musical peers.  Singer Rosanne Cash celebrates her as "a touchstone of authenticity in an image-driven, media-defined musical world.  She is a beautiful singer and songwriter, and deeply refreshing."   Mary Chapin Carpenter builds on Cash's praise: "I love Carrie Newcomer.  She writes and sings about what is most personal to her and in so doing she speaks to the wider world."  

In addition to her music, Carrie has become a prominent voice for social justice and interfaith dialogue.  She has received numerous awards not only for her music but also her related charitable activities.

She has performed in venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, London's Royal Festival Hall, a humble rural school in Africa, a womens cooperative in India, a Quaker meeting house in Ramala, and in an Indiana women's penitentiary.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m.  For more information, call 389-1770.
