Make sure that you sign up to join this conversation with singer, songwriter Carrie Newcomer. Karen Hurley Kuchar will interview Carrie about her creative process as a musician, and about how her work has opened up to ways we can challenge ourselves at our “growing edges.”
Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe and one who “asks all the right questions” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Carrie has 19 nationally released albums and three books of poetry & essays. Her latest album is Until Now. Go to www.carrienewcomer.com to learn more.
In recent years Carrie joined with the author Parker J. Palmer on several projects, including The Growing Edge collaboration which explores growing edges, personally, vocationally and politically.
Carrie is known for her low and resonant voice, for her musical depth and the progressive spiritual content of her songs, poetry and workshops, and for her continued work in justice, spiritual and interfaith communities, and health and hunger organizations. She lives in the wooded hills of South Central Indiana with her husband and two shaggy rescue dogs.
Life forever invites us to grow into new challenges, new adventures, new opportunities to learn and to serve. What’s your growing edge? Maybe it’s a quest for meaning or purpose. Or for a vocation where your deep gladness meets the world’s deep need. Or for ways to join others in working for the common good.From the Growing Edge Website
