One of my favourite singers in a young lady from the USA called Sara Groves. I have been inspired by her music for almost a decade now and yesterday I spotted on twitter that she is coming to the UK to tour later this year. While the England dates and locations are not yet announced on their website or the ticket site I did ask Troy Groves, via twitter, if they would be coming to Bristol and the answer was: "
@JohnCScanlon we are coming to Bristol!! Just booked 4 England shows. Will be adding to site soon. Look forward to meeting! T"
If you haven't heard of Sara Groves or heard any of her music you are missing something very special and powerful moving. Her music is spirit filled, beautiful, and challenging. I often have her music on when I am writing my Homilies or when I need music to help me pray.
She has released 10 albums, and you can find them on Amazon and iTunes as well as on her own website www.saragroves.com. You can also find several of her video's on YouTube and I have linked to a couple of them below to give you an idea of how lovely her music is. The nice thing about her own website is that it has the lyrics for all her songs as well, and as they are such powerful reflection on Christian life it's well worth spending time reading as well as listen to her words.
I'll post again as soon as more information is available.
