About An Evening With Carrie Newcomer And Friends

Join us for an evening with Carrie Newcomer and friends, celebrating the release of her new album The Beautiful Not Yet. Bloomington's own Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer, and educator. She has been described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe, a performer that “asks all the right questions” by Rolling Stone, and “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate” by The Austin Statesman. The Dallas Morning News calls her “the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, 'that is so true.'” Available Light Records will release The Beautiful Not Yet, Newcomer's latest album, in September. Newcomer also has 14 national releases on the Concord/Rounder Records, including The Geography of Light, The Gathering of Spirits, and Before and After. In 2014, Newcomer also released her first companion book, A Permeable Life: Poems and Essays. More than half the songs on The Beautiful Not Yet were created for a spoken word/music collaboration with Parker J. Palmer entitled What We Need is Here: Hope, Hard Times and Human Possibility. Doors will open at 7:30pm. Tickets may be purchased for $22 at the BCT Box Office,, or over the phone at (812) 323-3020.
