Irish Singer-Songwriter Luke Slott to Play in Concert at Little Pond Arts Retreat
Little Pond Arts Retreat (www.littlepond.org) at 92 South Penn Dixie Road in Nazareth announces its selection as the only venue in the Lehigh Valley to host a "fireside" concert by Irish composer and singer-songwriter Luke Slott, as part of his six-week tour of the U.S. East Coast teaching the Baha'i Faith through song and story.
The one-hour concert, titled "Music and Stories," will take place on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, starting at 7 p.m.
Born into a musical family in Dublin, Slott began playing music at an early age, learning jazz trumpet from his father and studying classical piano at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Alongside his piano and trumpet studies, Slott took up the guitar and spent much of his formative years writing songs and singing in the folk and rock clubs of Ireland. He has released five albums of his music (www.lukeslott.com); and many of his songs can be found on YouTube.
At the age of 21, Slott embraced the Bahá'í Faith and began incorporating the Bahá'í Sacred Writings into his music. He has released five albums of both vocal and instrumental songs and has toured extensively, giving concerts and music workshops in more than 20 countries.
In honor of the international Bahá'í Community's 2017 celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Bahá'u'lláh, the Founder of the Bahá'í Faith, Slott recently released a new album entitled Year of the Nightingale.
There is no charge to attend Luke Slott's concert at Little Pond Arts Retreat, but seating is limited. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation and CDs of Slott's albums will be available for purchase.
The Luke Slott concert at Little Pond is sponsored by the Bahá'ís of the Lehigh Valley (www.bahailv.org).
