A celebrated trans singer-songwriter and four-time Outmusic Award Nominee, Namoli Brennet will bring her folk-rock music to the Javarita Coffeehouse. Her live performances blur the line between singer and sonic painter, incorporating loops, delays, and foot percussion to create an ethereal one-woman soundscape--but she's equally compelling in an intimate stripped-down setting.

Tickets must be purchased in advance, either at the church office or on Sunday mornings before or after worship. Tickets are $15.  520-625-1375

Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Marty Axelrod will be with us for our annual Christmas Concert. Adored by fans that say he always lights up their hearts, taking our imagination on a journey from the sublime to the ridiculous. If Randy Newman and John Prine had a love child, Marty would be it. Sounds like my kind of concert.
