My guest this week is celebrated folk singer Carrie Newcomer. We talked her powerful insights about how we can bridge the divisions in our communities.
In our highly polarized society, Newcomer invites us to show up differently in our community – with kindness, generosity and hospitality. In every community she visits, Newcomer sees people working hard trying to make the world a little kinder place.
Newcomer has visited North Central Washington many times. She taught songwriting at the Grünewald Guild in Plain for several years and has performed at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts. The title track on her last studio album was co-written by Plain native Chloe Caemmerer. Newcomer offers us new insights and ways to think about creating stronger, more connected and compassionate communities.
Newcomer will be singing at Snowy Owl Theater in Leavenworth on Friday, March 23 and hosting a community workshop on Saturday, March 24.
