What is Blues Vespers?
Vespers is the traditional word for evening worship marked by music and prayer. Blues Vespers is a way of combining a time for reflection and prayer with blues music.
Blues music and its cousin, gospel music, often expresses in its words and music human joy, longing, passion and pain. An evening’s music reminds us that God is there for us in all of life, often in the places where we are most human.
Blues, like many other forms of music, can help express what we experience in life. At times music can be prayer. At other times God speaks to us as we listen and are entertained by the music. Musicians often find music a form of spiritual expression.
With all that said, there are times we simply enjoy listening to good music – which in itself is pretty nice and can nourish our souls.
