Expresso with John Coleman
Sunday 25 June 2017
6 – 8pm in the Church Dungeon
FREE entry. Food & drink available to purchase.
John is an acoustic folk singer/songwriter who has produced nine albums of original songs – his most recent – “Shade Tree Place”. Many of John’s songs have been inspired by the spirituality of the L’Arche and Quaker communities to which he belongs. John (guitar/vocals) will perform his original songs for us at Expresso, accompanied by Oliver Gathercole on piano.
“John conveys deep theology in a vivid and accessible way. His music evokes the presence of God in the beauty of the Australian landscape and the gritty hardships of life.”
– Celia Kemp “Campfire in Heart”
Singer-songwriter John Coleman’s melodic and soulful music envelops his audience with warmth, kindness, humor and insight. To spend an evening with John is to go on a journey that meanders through universal experiences of love, loss, forgiveness, whimsy, searching and joy. John takes us to rich places of the heart where we recognize ourselves and encounter one another, and all this while infusing the evening with lovely, sometimes humorous and sometimes poignant vignettes about how his songs came to be. Besides having a darn good time, I always leave a John Coleman concert with renewed hope and perhaps even a bit more healed. His Seattle fans can’t wait for his next show!
