As a storyteller, Shawn Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor.  In the 19 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has created a remarkable cannon of work, won three Grammy Awards, released eight albums, and maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule.  In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent.   

A natural songbird that can hush an audience with her performances, Patty Griffin’s power is in her passionate storytelling and that voice… that sad and lonely voice.  Griffin’s latest album, Downtown Church, showcases that exceptional voice in the traditions of gospel music, the drive and the anguish, the joy and the power of faith and fate. 

Marathon Kids is a free, six month, running/walking/nutrition and gardening program for K-5th graders who are most vulnerable to type 2 diabetes and sedentary lifestyles. We build joyful community around children and are quickly accepted into public, private and home schools as a free, innovative celebratory fitness program, resonating with the child...and with the child's family. The child develops the love and habit of moving through space and carries forward the power of muscular, nutritional and psychological well being.
