Folk Concert and Holiday Dessert with…
Ben Keyes and Ordinary Time
Sunday December 7th • 2pm • TCC Wayland
With the business of the commercial “holiday” season, it is easy to forget the heart of Advent and Christmas. It is easy to skip over what it is all about – that God loved us so much that he sent himself. “All for love’s sake, became poor.” Ben Keyes and his trio, also known as Ordinary Time, will usher us with music and story into the spirit of that season. Don’t miss it.
Who is Ordinary Time?
Ordinary Time (the band!) is an independent folk acoustic trio rooted in the Christian tradition. Comprised of Ben Keyes (TCC’er! guitar, piano, mandolin), Peter La Grand (guitar, banjo, dobro), and Jill McFadden (guitar, violin), Ordinary Time presents extraordinarily rich vocal harmonies, skillful instrumentation, and thought-provoking lyrics. The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs—often indistinguishably—producing a sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred harp hymn arrangements. The band has released three records and tours semi-annually.
Grounded in tradition, innovative in expression, and mature in musicianship, Ordinary Time offers an important and unique voice, gifting us with enduring tunes for the journey of faith.
Why should I come?
If you love raw, authentic music with a thought provoking Christian message, you will love Ordinary Time. If you like rich 3-part harmonies, accompanied by mandolins and banjos, you will love Ordinary Time. If you are a fan of Ben Keyes, you will love Ordinary Time. If you like robust beards, you will love Ordinary Time.
If you want to draw closer to Jesus this Advent and Christmas season, and be reminded of the real reason for the season, you won’t want to miss this concert.
Hope to see you there!
Ordinary Time will also be leading us in worship on December 7th at the 9:30a and 11a services.
