Singer/Songwriter Carrie Newcomer in concert with pianist Gary Walters
University Congregational Church
Seattle, WA
Share this event:


Carrie Newcomer sings of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. She returns to Seattle in concert with her longtime collaborator pianist Gary Walters. $30 is the suggested donation for admission, with no one turned away for lack of funds. We'll provide tickets until the house is full! Tickets will be available at the door the night of the show on a space-available basis, paid by cash or check.

Rolling Stone declares that: "Newcomer's material asks all the right questions and refuses to settle for easy answers." The Austin-American Statesman terms her voice "an instrument as dark, rich, and luscious as Godiva chocolate." As a contemplative Quaker, she has emerged as a prominent voice for inclusive spirituality. Newcomer collaborates closely with the author Parker Palmer on powerful responses to our fractured time.

The concert will feature Newcomer's recent release, The Point of Arrival. She says it is "about living in times where we are asked to be better people than we ever thought we would need to be. In times like these, where do we find our grounding?  I've been an activist all my adult life. But anger only gets you so far. And fear only gets you so far then you burn out or you get immobilized. What we need to ask is: Where is my true compass? What's true north? As we walk through troubled times together -- whether they're politically troubled times or our own personal troubled times --how do we keep walking with a strong center and a spiritual grounding?"

Newcomer's appearance is produced by Gathering Ground, a cooperative of people who seek meaning by listening, learning, and acting together.  Additional support to guarantee access for all comes from the Adult Education Endowment of University Congregational United Church of Christ.
