Join us for an afternoon concert with Carrie Newcomer, A Gathering of Spirits and a Festival of Friends. Sat., Sept. 30, 2017, 2 p.m. HCC Student Conf. Ctr. • Freeport, IL, NO Reserved Seating – General Admission – FREE! Please RSVP through Eventbrite.com

Join us for stories of hope and gratitude the afternoon of September 30, in a room filled with the beautiful voice and words of Carrie Newcomer.

Carrie is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “soaring songstress” by Billboard and a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe. The Austin Statesman described her as having “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate” and Rolling Stone once said, she “asks all the right questions.” Most simply put, the Dallas Morning News said, “She’s the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, ‘that is so true.’”

Admission is free and no tickets are needed. Like a certain seat? Come early when doors open at 1:00 pm to pick your favorite – remember no reserved seating.

Please RSVP through Eventbrite.com so we know you are coming. Questions? Call 815-871-8014 or contact us at nwilaudubon@gmail.com.

Here’s what other artists and authors are saying about Carrie Newcomer:

Carrie Newcomer – a great gift to humanity. Her music – a great gift to our souls.” – Jill Bolte Taylor, author of My Stroke of Insight

I love Carrie Newcomer. She writes and sings about what is most personal to her and in doing so she speaks to the wider world. Her new CD, The Geography of Light, is full of gorgeous arrangements that frame her soulful vocals, and the song ‘Geodes’ will make you catch your breath with its wisdom and beauty.” – Mary Chapin Carpenter

One of my favorite things: a new set of songs from Carrie Newcomer. With all my favorite themes contained inside new melodies, heartbreakingly perfect production and a voice at its all-time best, I have fallen madly for this one.” – Barbara Kingsolver, author of The Poisonwood Bible
