Ordinary Time is an independent folk acoustic trio rooted in the Christian tradition. Comprised of Ben Keyes (guitar, piano, mandolin), Peter La Grand (guitar, banjo, dobro), and Jill McFadden (guitar, violin), Ordinary Time presents extraordinarily rich vocal harmonies, skillful instrumentation, and thought-provoking lyrics. The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs– often indistinguishably– producing a sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred hard hymn arrangements. The band has released three records and tours semi-annually.Grounded in tradition, innovative in expression, and mature in musicianship, Ordinary Time offers an important and unique voice, gifting us with enduring tunes for the journey of faith.
To Follow?Your burdens are light,but your blessings are heavy,almost too weighty to bearThere’s a hook in this meal,to receive is to follow,and you won’t always say where.What fool would dare follow you?
