Caedmon's Call in Concert at Hope

Tickets go on sale soon for Dove Award nominees Caedmon's Call, who will perform as part of the Hope College Christian Music Series on Sat., Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The six-piece group, an eclectic, folk-influenced band, has created a large following across the nation, particularly on the college circuit. To date, Caedmon's Call has accumulated more than one million career record sales, garnered six No.1 radio singles, and has been nominated for 10 Dove Awards. They have recently been touring with Jars of Clay, who appeared at Hope College last year.

The band's fifth and latest release, "Back Home," continues where the group's previous albums left off, with powerful and introspective lyrics in each of its songs. Drummer Todd Bragg said, "Although it's a reflective album, 'Back Home' also signifies a new era for Caedmon's Call... one that's full of hope and adventure."
