“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.”
– Eden Ahbez, from the song Nature Boy
This month’s Unplugged on the Front Porch will be a real treat! Our dear friend and ally John Pointer will take us on a musical journey through this season of gifting, connection, and reflection, without singing a single refrain of “Jingle Bells”!
Here’s a video which captures a little bit of both his musical talent, and his character.
This Unplugged concert and conversation promises to be deeply moving, entertaining, and thoughtful. He’ll bring some guests, too, but just like any great gift… you’ll have to come see for yourself exactly who pops out of the box!
And even if you think you know him as a community advocate and visionary, you really need to see him on stage to understand where his true strengths lie. It’s going to be a night to remember, so please join us, and invite your friends!
Providing regular opportunities for Austin folks to engage with exceptional musicians in an acoustically exquisite venue– the sanctuary at All Saints’ Episcopal Church– Unplugged on The Front Porch invites all devoted listeners to gather in one spot on a monthly basis to venerate our city’s best musical storytellers. In just two short hours, our listening experience reaches into the hearts and minds of these musicians as we explore with them not only their art but also their life experiences and opinions in our intimate gathering characterized by both music and conversation.
Each edition of Unplugged on The Front Porch features an hour an a half of music divided into two sets, a fifteen-minute interview with the artist, and a fifteen-minute intermission. Every concert is taped, and we ask for a donation of $15 at the door that goes directly toward paying our crew and our artists the living wages they deserve.
