Drumming and Singing on the Prairies

We’re off on tour today, returning home in mid June, making our way out into western Manitoba and back, with drumming workshops and concerts all along the way. In the middle of our trip we’re providing music and worship resource for the Summer Ecumenical Institute in Saskatoon, June 2-5. If you are in the Saskatoon area, this will be an amazing time of worship and learning in a wide circle of community.

Visit our events page for a full list of our host communities along the way. And please tell your friends if we’re in the area!

Bruce at VST 2009-2010

We’re pleased to announce that Bruce will be teaching at the Vancouver School of Theology this summer, July 6-10. Bruce and those who take his course will be tackling a critical subject for all of us in the church today: Singing in the New Creation: A Crossroads in Congregational Song, with options for credit or auditing, and for advanced degree credit. Registration deadlines are approaching, so sign up soon if you wish to join in the singing, fun and discussion. A course description and syllabus are on the Chalmers Summer School website.

Bruce has also been asked to be musician-in-residence at VST for the academic year 2009-2010, supporting the community life of the school through worship and choir leadership. We’re really looking forward to our time with the VST community, and would encourage anyone to join us, as you are able, for worship and singing on campus throughout the year.

Coming Soon to a Community Near You… The Be-Attidudes!

And we want to play together more often!

And so expect a tour as soon as possible of the Be-Attidudes, a brand new trio, with Paul Rumbolt on guitar and vocals, Bruce Harding on bass, guitar, flutes and vocals, and with a groovalicious drummer and good friend, David Jonsson on his amazing Go Kit microdrums!⇒ Continue reading
