An evening of great music, with a cup or two of good, strong coffee… all for $5. Where are you going to find a better deal than that? Thanks to Jeremiah our Dreadlocked Drummer we’re once again offering an evening of music by some of the musicians connected to saint benedict’s table.
Great Music and Strong Coffee
An evening of music… and coffee
Friday November 26, 7:30pm
And we’re encouraging you to bring along a pair of warm socks, mitts or a hat to donate to the work of Agape Table. Every weekday Agape Table sets up in our parish hall, and serves a hot meal to over 200 people. They also provide opportunities for their guests to do a bit of learning and creative expression in their arts and music programs.
To get at some info and samples from our contributing musicians, just chase the following links:
For Anthony Sweet’s alonetone site, where he has posted a whole host of music to listen to, just click here.
Anthony was one of the contributors to our Beautiful Mercy book and CD project.
For Aimee Lane’s MySpace site (which, like Anthony’s site, is filled with great tunes), simply click here.
A strong singer/songwriter in her own right, Aimee offers up her distinctive voice and presence in one of our Sunday evening worship ensembles.
For a video recording of one of Margaret Howison’s songs (recorded at a recurring summer event called Cabaret, hosted in a backyard on Woodrow Avenue) just click here.
Margaret has recently begun adding her vocals to Alana Levandoski’s Sunday evening music ensemble.
And to listen to some music from by Jaymie Friesen in her From Giants project, you can head to her Myspace site, where you’ll be able to access three of the songs from the “Wake Up Oh Sleeper” CD. She’s considering bringing along a side-musican or two, just to keep it interesting…
And along with that mere $5, we’re encouraging you to bring along a pair of warm socks, gloves or a winter hat to donate to Agape Table, so that they can help to equip their patrons for the cold winter months.
And in case you’re wondering why we’re so interested in giving musicians the opportunity to play live, the short answer is because we believe music matters. The longer answer is available in a sermon entitled “Into the abandoned and besieged places.”
