Belton, Texas – The music of All Sons & Daughters is a unique blend of traditional worship and acoustic folk. Their albums have appeared on U.S. Christian, folk, and heatseekers charts, and on Saturday, March 29, they will be sharing it in a free discussion and concert in the Hughes Recital Hall of Presser Hall on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor campus.
The concert and discussion is part of the university’s C3: Conversations About Christianity + Culture series. The discussion will begin at 1 p.m. and will be followed by a concert. The event is free and open to the public.
In recent years music lovers worldwide have enjoyed a resurgence of the folk music with bands like Mumford and Sons, The Avett Brothers, and The Civil Wars earning both critical and commercial success. These groups and others like them stand out among more poppy fare by dismissing an overly produced sound in favor of something less polished and more imperfect.
For All Sons & Daughters' Leslie Jordan and David Leonard, these qualities are even more keenly experienced in music that connects broken people with their God. Worship leaders at Journey Church in Franklin, TN, their critically acclaimed EPs, Brokenness Aside, Reason to Sing, and The Longing, along with their first full length feature album, Season One, bear witness to the power of worship by the people, for the people, and of the people.
