"Concert: An evening with Fran McKendree and River Guerguerian Songs for the Journey…" by River Guerguerian, Fran McKendree

05/22/2018 5:15PM—Metropolitan AME Church

An evening with Fran McKendree and River Guerguerian  Songs for the Journey… Come join us for an evening of songs for this journey that we share. Fran and River invite you into an hour or so of inspiring, thought-provoking and life-affirming songs and rhythms.  Let the music enfold you, sing with us as you feel comfortable, and dig into some truly awe-inspiring percussion work by River.


'Fran and his music have both woken me up to the startling reality of divine love through the years.  I don't know what to call it--heart, clarity, vision, soul--but there is so much of it in Fran's songs that I cannot hear his voice without receiving more of these gifts myself.’ ~ Barbara Brown Taylor
