For Immediate Release
Indiana Friends Committee on Legislation is excited to sponsor a free concert Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 P.M., the final evening of the 2018 Western Yearly Meeting sessions.
This is the second year that IFCL will sponsor such an event for Western Yearly Meeting.
This time singer/songwriter Krista Detor will share her musical gifts.
Detor has conducted songwriting seminars, performances and presentations at universities, outreach organizations and arts centers throughout the world, including Ireland’s prestigious IMRO performing rights organization. In February, 2015, she was Artist-in-Residence at the renowned Hedgebrook foundation. In addition, Detor began a series of intergenerational songwriting workshops and performances in 2013, ‘Time Travels,’ pairing seniors with younger participants, resulting in collaborative performance projects in conjunction with Bloomington, Indiana’s Creative Aging Festival.
Krista conducted the first of her signature cross-cultural collaborations, along with Dr. Rod C. Taylor, in Northern Ireland, May, 2017 – taking 14 songwriters on an immersive, 10-day songwriting retreat. In 2018, she & Dr. Taylor will return to Ireland with a group of songwriters, in addition to hosting six Northern Irish writers for a similar experience in the U.S. in the fall. She continues to tour the U.S., U.K., and Europe. She’s shared stages with Victor Wooten, Chuck Rainey, Joan Armatrading, Loudon Wainwright, The Neville Bros. and Suzanne Vega, among many others.
