Spook Handy Performs Sept. 9-10 At Christ Unity Church

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Award winning songwriter/performer Spook Handy will be presenting a concert on Saturday, Sept. 9, at 8 p.m. at Charles and Myrtle's Coffeehouse, and giving the "Sermon in Song" on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 11 a.m. at the Christ Unity Church, both located at 105 McBrien Road.  Spook will present his Remembering Pete Seeger concert during the Saturday concert.  There is a $10 suggested donation on Saturday. 

Review for Spook Handy:

Spook performed alongside Pete Seeger more than 50 times in the last 10 years of Pete's life.  Now, he is touring throughout the U.S., Canada and internationally with his "Remembering Pete Seeger" World Tour."  His concerts not only share the songs, stories and words of wisdom he learned directly from Pete, but it shows that the tradition of using folk music as a tool to build and nurture community is alive and well.  Some songs will be nostalgic.  But don't be fooled.  This is a highly engaging, uplifting and energetic concert that is fresh and relevant to the world we live in today.  

Spook's 2016 CD, "Pete, Woody & Me, Volume I - Keep the Flame Alive" charted as high as No. 3 on the Folk Radio Charts with his original song "Vote" reaching No. 2.  

On Sunday, Spook will give a Sermon in Song on the topic "A Time to Build Up:  The 3rd Part of “Resist, Protect, Rebuild.”  

Folk musician and National Medal of the Arts recipient Pete Seeger said, “You don’t have to tear down a house in order to rebuild its foundation.”  

"How often do we hear someone say they would like to make the world a better place?" asked Spook.  "Would you believe that each one of us has a profound impact every day on the world we live in – starting with ourselves and extending out to our communities and the world as a whole?  In the personal lives, our communities and our work, our actions reflect and promote our values.  So, the question becomes: What values are we reflecting and promoting?  Are we promoting cynicism, division and individualism or are we promoting empowerment, integrity and solidarity?  Are we helping to rebuild the foundation or are we only helping to tear down the house?  Join us for songs, stories and reflection."
