Described as a "prairie mystic" by the Boston Globe, Grammy Award-winner Carrie Newcomer is known for her warm voice, beautiful melodies and an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world. In her 2016 concert special AN EVENING WITH CARRIE NEWCOMER, the Indiana-based folk singer and songwriter showcases the songs from her The Beautiful Not Yettour in support of her album of the same name. Acclaimed for her "deep, rich alto and penchant for exquisite melodies" by critics, Carrie's songs explore how we might live more present, engaged lives, even in the face of division, uncertainty, or heartbreak. She considers herself a spiritual progressive, and is a prominent voice for interfaith dialogue and social justice. Many of the songs on The Beautiful Not Yetalbum were created in conversation with the esteemed writer, teacher, and activist Parker J. Palmer as part of their spoken word and music collaboration, "What We Need Is Here: Hope, Hard Times and the Human Possibility. "Songs such as "Sanctuary," "Three Feet or So," and "You Can Do This Hard Thing" exemplify the themes of their collaboration, exploring how hope is sustained and activated by community.
