On 14-16 July, 2022, the Rabbit Room will convene the second Hutchmoot UK at St. Andrew’s Church in North Oxford. You’re invited to come and enjoy a weekend of live music, delicious food and conversation, and a series of discussions centred on art, faith, and the telling of great stories across a range of mediums.
Keynote: Andrew Peterson
As a singer-songwriter and recording artist, Andrew Peterson has released eleven records over the past fifteen years including his latest album, Resurrection Letters, Vol. 1. His music has earned him a reputation for writing songs that connect with his listeners in ways equally powerful, poetic, and intimate. A natural-born storyteller, Andrew has also followed his gifts into the realm of publishing. His books include The Wingfeather Saga, Adorning the Dark: Thoughts on Community, Calling, and the Mystery of Making, and The God of the Garden: Thoughts on Creation, Culture, and the Kingdom. Andrew, his wife, Jamie, and their three children live just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, on a wooded hill in a little house they call The Warren. Andrew is the founder of the Rabbit Room community and the bearer of the honorable title of “The Proprietor.”
Live in Concert: Joshua Luke Smith
Hutchmoot UK is proud to host Joshua Luke Smith live on Friday night, 15 July. Admission to the show is free for all Hutchmoot ticket holders.
Joshua Luke Smith is a poet, producer and natural storyteller. Smith has been praised in Complex, featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra and gave a TED X talk titled “The World Within” in 2017. As Smith himself says, his music is made to “speak into the chaos” of the modern world, distilling his own experiences into something anyone can relate to. Among Smith’s best known works is “Becoming Human,” a poem inspired by the story of an attempted suicide. The poem’s success paved the way for Smith’s work with suicide prevention charity Samaritans, the first of many charitable initiatives that Smith has been involved in. Rather than adding to the chaos of modern society, Smith’s music is about bringing solace and tranquility by addressing elements of the human condition that other artists might shy away from. In 2021 he released his debut album The Void and will see his first book published in the summer of 2022. He’s also the host of The Pilgrimage Podcast.
