Bobby Jo Valentine in Concert!
Wednesday, March 21 @ 7pm
United Christian Church of Austin and Austin Beer and Hymns are excited to bring award-winning singer/songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine to Austin for an informal concert benefitting Micah 6, a cooperative ministry meeting the needs of our homeless and impoverished neighbors in the University of Texas campus area.
Hope-folk, soul-pop, poetic rock…Bobby Jo Valentine’s music exists outside the lines of any genre. The music’s thoughtful lyrics and catchy melodies reach listeners on all paths of life, and the authentic, universal, uncanny nature of his songs have won him Songwriter of the Year at West Coast Songwriter’s Association twice – in 2011 and 2015, and Song of the Year in 2017.
Born into a Baptist church of strict lines and sharp edges and coming out of that culture to discover who he really is, Bobby is now a believer of a different sort: a believer in the wild, strange, mystical nature of the world. Faith has come to mean something much deeper, wider, and less cut-and-dried than when he started. Bobby now finds that he has just as much to learn from the people who believe differently than he does as the ones that do.
