Carrie Newcomer Performs at the Dennos Museum Center March 10th

The Dennos Museum Center at Northwestern Michigan College is pleased to present Carrie Newcomer in Milliken Auditorium, Friday, March 10th, 2017 at 8pm. Tickets are $27 in advance, $30 at the door, $24 for Museum Members plus a $2 processing fee. Tickets may be purchased on line at www.dennosmuseum.org or by calling the Museum Box office at 231-995-1553. Also at www.MyNorthTickets.com or 1-800-836-0717.

Carrie Newcomer has been described as “a soaring songstress” by Billboard, a “prairie mystic by the Boston Globe. Rolling Stone wrote that she asks all the right questions.” One of the definitive voices of the heartland and progressive spirituality, Newcomer has the ability for sharp observation of the world. Newcomer has attracted a devoted following with her warm voice, exquisite melodies, and an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world. As in the work of poets Mary Oliver and Wendell Berry, Newcomer’s songs are based in the ordinary, and infused with images from the natural world.

The Dennos concert series presents a diverse lineup of exciting performances in one of the best concert venues in the region. Our state-of-the-art sound, professional staff, and comfortable seating present an exceptional experience from any seat in the house. The adjoining museum serves as a beautiful and spacious reception area where you can meet the performing artists, or view the current exhibitions.
