Caedmon's Call Featured in Concert

Caedmon's Call will perform through the Hope College Christian Music Series on Saturday, Jan. 10, at 9 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The six-piece group, an eclectic, folk-influenced band, has created a large following across the nation, particularly on the college circuit.


Caedmon's Call has accumulated more than one million career record sales, has garnered six number-one radio singles and has been nominated for 10 Dove Awards. The group has been touring recently with Jars of Clay, which appeared at Hope College last year.


The band's fifth and latest release, "Back Home," continues where the group's previous albums left off, with powerful and introspective lyrics in each of its songs. Drummer Todd Bragg said, "Although it's a reflective album, 'Back Home' also signifies a new era for Caedmon's Call... one that's full of hope and adventure."


Tickets are available at the Student Development Office in the DeWitt Center, and are $20 for the general public.


Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located on College Avenue at 12th Street.

The concert is being sponsored by the student Social Activities Committee in conjunction with Hope's Student Congress.
