A Gathering of Spirits and a Festival of Friends: A Concert by Carrie Newcomer

Saturday, September 30, 2017

2:00 PM (doors open at 1:00 PM)

NLI is pleased to be a Co-Sponsor of this concert. Join us for an afternoon with Carrie Newcomer and “a gathering of spirits and a festival of friends.” We will all unite on this day and dedicate it to stories of hope and gratitude, but also to be in the present moment, a moment that will take place 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.’”

The event is FREE and open to the public. General Admission with no reserved seating. Please register online via (search for Carrie Newcomer) or by phone at 815-871-8014.  Location: Highland Community College, 2998 West Pearl City Road, Student Conference Center, Room H201, Freeport, Illinois, 61032
