Join us for an afternoon concert with Carrie Newcomer and pianist Gary Walters. Sat., Aug. 24, 2019, 7 p.m. HCC Student Conf. Ctr. • Freeport, IL – General Admission – FREE!

As part of our chapter’s 20th anniversary celebration of our Elkhorn Creek Biodiversity Preserve, we are pleased to once again sponsor a free concert featuring the fabulous folksinger Carrie Newcomer with pianist Gary Walters.

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 with no tickets or reserved seating.

The Student Conference Center, Building H, is on the northwest corner of the Freeport campus. Parking is directly north of the building entrance; the building is fully accessible. For directions to the college, check the website or call 815.235.6121.

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
