This sounds like an awesome event..
Americans United for Separation of Church and State represents members and supporters in all 50 states. We come from different religious, political and philosophical viewpoints, but we share a common commitment to church-state separation and individual freedom. Americans United wants to share our message through music, bring together artists to perform at house concerts all across the country, and major concert events in at least six cities. For more about Americans United visit our web site at www.au.org.
Voices United's major concert events are being coordinated by musician/producer John Jennings, a guitarist whose decades-long career spans several genres with top performers. John has produced or performed on albums by Mary Chapin Carpenter, the Indigo Girls, Cheryl Wheeler, George Jones, and a host of others. We are pleased that John is joining with Voices United to produce our major events. Look for more information about the events as it becomes available.
When the singer-songwriter movement boomed in the mid-‘90s, Catie Curtis was at its forefront. Now a veteran artist with an 18-year career, Curtis has recorded 11 critically acclaimed solo albums and has had songs featured in numerous TV shows, including “Dawson’s Creek,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Alias,” as well as in films such as “500 Miles to Graceland” and “A Slipping Down Life.” She won the Grand Prize in the International Songwriting Competition, several Boston Music Awards and has garnered critical praise along with a loyal fan base. Since the release of her 11th album, Stretch Limousine on Fire, in 2011, Curtis has continued to tour extensively, playing venues ranging from Chicago’s legendary Old Town School of Folk Music to the White House. All this makes Catie a perfect choice for coordinating the more than 50 House Concerts planned by Voices United.
Catie is lending her talents to Voices United for Separation of Church and State because she believes in the cause of freedom of conscience and the right of all Americans to live their lives free from government-imposed dogma. Catie agrees with Americans United that for religion to be meaningful, it must be freely chosen. The right to believe – or not – as you see fit is the cornerstone of American liberty. Through Voices United, Catie is proud to be working with Americans of all stripes, lifting our voices high in a celebration of freedom.
