EASTON — Nationally recognized musician Ken Medema and actor Ted Swartz will visit Easton, as part of their spring tour, “Can We Talk? Conversations for Change through Story and Song,” on Wednesday, March 11. Both have performed frequently at church and secular events nationwide, but this is the first time they have toured together.

Their Eastern Shore stop is being sponsored by Easton Church of the Brethren. The show will take place at 7 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre, 40 E. Dover St. Tickets for the show are $15 each (general admission), with all proceeds over expense benefiting Talbot Interfaith Shelter. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Blind from birth, Medema lives in the San Francisco Bay area. He has delighted audiences across the United States and beyond with his resonant voice, piano playing and ability to weave songs spontaneously from stories shared by audience members. He has recorded more than 40 albums.

Swartz, a veteran actor based in Harrisonburg, Va., has created or co-created more than a dozen plays, performing in most of the 50 states and Canada. He also serves as executive director of the Center for Art, Humor,and Soul.

“Can We Talk?” is described as “a rollicking 90 minutes of story, song, laughter, and moments of serious reflection around listening and conversation, especially when there is so much disagreement on issues in the church and society. You will never be more than a few minutes from a laugh or a moment that makes you hold your breath,” according to a press release

To purchase tickets, contact Easton Church of the Brethren at 410-822-0475 or email eastonchurchofthebre thren@gmail.com. Tickets can be delivered via mail, in-person pickup or will call the night of the show.
