WE’VE ALWAYS KNOWN with Claire Puckett, Camille Schiess, Daniel Fears, & Travis Marcum

This event has passed.

For the last eight years, ACG Music & Healing has built beautiful connections in our community. 

This special initiative pairs songwriters with individuals experiencing profound challenges to use music as a pathway for connection and self-expression in creating original songs that give voice to their hopes, fears, and dreams.

WE’VE ALWAYS KNOWN brings together four amazing singer/songwriters to re-interpret, re-visit and share some of these extraordinary pieces of music. Featuring guitarist Claire Puckett, violinist Camille Schiess, multi-instrumentalist Daniel Fears, and Music & Healing Director and guitarist Travis Marcum.

Join us for this unforgettable evening.
