Founders Hall was filled with the positive energy of heart-lifting sound on Saturday, January 20th as we enjoyed the music of singer-songwriter-poet Carrie Newcomer, accompanied pianist Gary Walters. After the Women’s March that morning, Carrie’s song “If Not Now, Tell Me When,” seemed especially timely. And we all joined in to sing her “Room at the Table” that speaks so clearly to our UU principles. Many commented effusively about the concert … using descriptive words like “splendid concert,” “a great duo,” “excellent show … in every way.” Others mentioned being inspired and uplifted. And our “spoken word” and poetry fans loved Carrie reading from her books of poetry and musings. Thanks to all who reached out through your social networks to encourage concert attendance. The majority of folks attending (3 out every 4) were not Fellowship members, so it turns out that our concerts are a great way to reach out to our community.
