Incredible musicianship, brilliant songwriting and a great time. That was our first experience when we had them the first time. Due to popular demand, The Arcadian Wild returns to the coffeehouse as does the opener, On the Trail.
IMMANUEL started as a folk-pop songwriter album that was released in fall 2017. The album is the 3rd studio collaboration between Melanie and Nashville-based producer Ben Shive (Andrew Peterson, Sara Groves, Audrey Assad). The album reached #1 on Amazon's Christian, Christian worship, and general Holiday charts.
Each one of the original songs is based on the characters we meet in Luke 1-2 and Matthew 1-2. All the songs from IMMANUEL are written from a first-person perspective.
The project was created with an intention that anyone could access these songs and the stories within, no matter where they are on their faith journey. We've found IMMANUEL is an event that can help show hosts welcome their neighborhoods and surrounding communities into a Christmas experience.
