On November 22, 2015 Sandbox Cooperative will welcome Heatherlyn. Heatherlyn is a singer, song artist from Minneapolis with a Soul ~ Roots ~ Rock vibe. In concert, Heatherlyn leads the audience on a refreshing journey of connection–from whimsical laughter to thoughtfulness, inviting listeners to consider how they are conduits of peace and hope in the world. Heatherlyn will invite us to explore music and creativity as an expression of faith.
“Making music, I come alive. This is the best thing I have to contribute to the beauty and healing of our world. My hope is that the community of people who experience our music will also be nourished, challenged, moved. I hope we’re encouraged to be the truest, most alive version of ourselves and inspired to contribute to the beauty and healing of our world in only the way that each of us can.”
