Carrie Newcomer with Violinist Sumaia Jackson

Date

Jul 11, 2017
08:15pm – 10:30pm

Location
Hoover Auditorium (map)

Carrie Newcomer is a singer-songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “soaring songstress” by Billboard and “one of the most influential folk artists of the last 25 years” by Boston’s WBEZ.

Her deeply spiritual view of the world grows out of her contemplative Quaker faith. She has appeared on PBS’s “Religion and Ethics” and Krista Tippett’s national award-winning show “On Being” to discuss her work in social/environmental justice, interfaith dialogue and progressive spirituality.

Newcomer has toured Europe with Alison Krauss, and the band Nickel Creek recorded Newcomer’s song “I Should’ve Known Better,” on their Grammy-winning album This Side.

Other recent collaborations with influential authors, scientists and theologians include, Jill Bolte Taylor, Scott Russell Sanders, Rabbi Sandy Sasso and Lakeside Chautauqua’s Week 4 Preacher of the Week, Pastor Philip Gulley.

Newcomer’s first theatrical production, Betty’s Diner: The Musical, was produced as part of Purdue University’s 2015/2016 theatrical season, and received rave reviews for its completely sold-out run. The music was written in collaboration with Richard K. Thomas and arranged by Gary Walters.

Her latest album, The Beautiful Not Yet, was released September 2016. On this album, and in a companion book of poems and essays, she explores how we might live more present, engaged lives, even in the face of division, uncertainty or heartbreak.

Newcomer will be joined by violinist Sumaia Jackson. Currently finishing up her Performance and American Roots Music degree at Berklee College of Music, Jackson has immersed herself deeply in folk traditions including old-time, jazz and Bluegrass. The rhythmic aspects of her background in old-time and celtic fiddle styles, creates her smooth but driving sound as a fiddler and tune writer. Jackson grew up studying classical music in California, and about eight years into her studies, she was captivated by traditional Irish and Scottish fiddle music.
