Roots, Music, and Faith

Roots

As the summer gives way to autumn, Two Rivers Church will host several special guest musicians as a part of a new worship series called “Roots: The Good News of celebration, struggle, truth-telling, and American roots music.”

Local Blues legend Ellis Kell will join us in worship on August 21. The blues are widely considered to be the root of most American music. With origins in the call and response songs of slave fields, the blues have been  a source of expression and hope for generations.

On August 28, members of the Quartermoon Tin Snips will share their bluegrass style with a mix of classic gospel bluegrass tunes.

On September 4, Edgar Crocket will be a part of Jazz Sunday, which has become a Two Rivers tradition over the past few years.

September 11 will feature the return of the Sanctuary Choir and the beginning of a new season of Sunday school.

On September 18, we will go back to the deepest roots of our music and faith with Richard Bruxvoort Colligan, who marries the Psalms with modern folk melodies.
