This Sunday: Michael Morris & Dewi Sant

Just a little blurb about this coming Sunday, the 24th of January.  I am happy to announce that we will have guest musician Michael Morris and his band, Dewi Sant.  They are in the midst of a tour to promote their new album, “May”.  I’ve been listening to it and I have fallen in love with it.You can hear their music here.The CD release show will be on Saturday, the 23rd at the Sunset Tavern in Seattle.You can expect worship on Sunday evening to be a little out of the ordinary, and filled with tons of wonderful original music.  I’m really looking forward to it.-Sean

    First things first: Michael Morris and his crew are all pretty much the nicest people in the world. Not to mention, with their forces combined, they can create a moving, lush, subdued collage of acoustic sounds that make me want to move into a log cabin in the woods, build a fire and write poetry all day. No, really! There is a pace, a dynamic, a mood, a spirit that they capture, and then re-deliver, that equally lulls and pulls at me. I don’t know if I can explain it any better than that.The sanctuary at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is quite large, and constructed entirely of wood, stone and glass. As you can imagine, the acoustics complimented Dewi Sant’s soundscape of organ, piano, glockenspiel, lightly-brushed drums, cello, mandolin, harmonica and guitar quite aptly. I spent most of my time behind the soundbooth, and hardly had to do much amplification at all, with the exception of Michael’s nearly-whispered vocals. They played us every track off the record, interspersing them with Michael’s (sometimes meandering, but always poignant) musings about songwriting, traveling, faith, religion and his history with our congregation.I know for some it’s hard to sit through a concert when you’re used to worship. For others it was a welcome treat to just sit and listen. I genuinely loved it. And then, when all was said and done, I sat and chatted with the bunch for another hour or so afterwards. Also, I picked up a copy of "May" and I’m looking forward to the next opportunity I may have to listen to it in on the speakers of my truck over a long stretch of highway.And tomorrow they’re all off to Holden Village. Good travels, gang!! Thanks for the visit.-Sean
