Church concert to feature junkyard percussion

Egg cartons, flip flops, flower vases, even aerosol sprays can be musical instruments of love and hope, as singer-songwriter Mitch McVicker will show in a concert at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 at Christian Church of Florence.

McVicker began his career collaborating with the late Rich Mullins, a contemporary Christian artist well-known for his worship songs. McVicker is a Dove Award-winning artist who has recorded 11 CDs, played himself in the movie “Ragamuffin,” and performed more than 1,800 concerts in the United States and abroad.

In his live shows, McVicker uses a sequencer to create multilayered percussion lines using common “junkyard” and household items. Those tracks form a base over which he uses his voice, multiple guitars, ukulele, bass, percussion, and banjo to perform all original songs, along with audience participation, storytelling, humor, and a challenging message.

Admission is free.
