The Interfaith Sanctuary House Band:

With a rhythm section, guitars, and vocals, this group of talented musicians have chosen songs that express the joy and struggle of their lives. Their collaborative efforts and the restorative power of music make for a unique, heartfelt performance you won’t want to miss.
