"Unforgettable, hilarious, insightful, self-effacing, ironic, and Lutheran - not words that go together every day. Pierced and tattooed, theologically deep, a mom, a fire-and-Pentecost progressive preacher, a stand-up comic ... also an unlikely list of descriptors. A gifted writer, a liturgical acrobat, an honest and outspoken sinner-saint, the person you should invite to your next event where you need a deep, engaging, and surprising speaker - I could only be talking about Nadia Bolz-Weber."
-Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
The Roots Revival Band will lead worship and special music throughout the weekend.The group of singer-songwriter's from Winston-Salem, NC lead worship regularly for the Roots Revival service at Centenary United Methodist.No one ever leaves Roots Revival saying, "That was exactly what I expected."
It's not contemporary, but it's not traditional. It's informal, but it's liturgical. It's contemplative, but it's fun.
Each service is built around one or two "focus songs" (usually ones that are not explicitly religious). They specialize in creating an atmosphere of welcome and invitation that comes through in excellent music and thought-provoking liturgy.
The band is made up of Martha Bassett, Sam Frazier, Pat Lawrence, and Sarah Howell. Lead singer Martha, is regularly seen on stages at Merlefest, the Eastern Music Festival, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival and concert venues throughout North Carolina and Virginia. She’s opened for Lyle Lovett, Tony Bennett, the Avett Brothers, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Jim Lauderdale, and Chuck Prophet.Martha contributed music to the Sony Classics film, “Junebug,” as well.
