This event is a must-see and must-hear. Ken Medema is a nationally known and respected composer, arranger, clinician, and performer who has been exciting audiences for forty years. Across the years, Ken has shared his passion for learning and discovery through storytelling and music with an ever-growing circle of followers around the world. Ken has performed in many different venues: Churches, conventions, colleges, corporations and more, for groups ranging from 50 to 50,000 people. Through the Interlude, project, Ken and partners are now conducting retreats, workshops, and special programs for small churches. Though blind from birth, Ken sees and hears with heart and mind, singing stories from his audience and accenting themes and perspectives from speakers and workshop leaders. Ken custom designs every musical moment through improvisation and new composition to bring each event to life.
Ken and his wife, Jane, make their home in Alameda, California. Together, they work on programs designs and song lyrics, making time to explore new developments in religion, psychology and culture. They share a passion for movies (yes, Ken is an avid movie consumer), books, new music and politics, and love keeping up with two feisty grandchildren.
