Parish Media Liaison Post 6-30-08

Make the Connection...using new media to strengthen your connection to faith!

More on music!

Following up on my post 2 weeks ago I have found some other resources for great Catholic Music!

Check out Grapevine Online where you can "read, listen, watch and talk about your favorite catholic music"! www.gvonline.net/ Hosted by Massachusetts resident Susan Bailey! I had a nice chat with her on the phone after she found my blog on catholic music. She has an excellent site and podcast that I now subscribe to. Susan shared what she's doing with me and also talked to me about my next pick!

Proud 2B Catholic music festival: http://www.proud2bcatholic.com/Events/Framingham happening on August 9th. Featuring artist Tony Melendez, Martin Doman, Kelly Pease, Zealous, D-Major, Sammy Blaze and others. I am planning to go. Susan says it's phenominal! Contact me if you'd like to carpool. There are also other P2BC events happening around the country as well as other concerts by Catholic musicians. You can learn more at GVonline.net


In my last post about music I wrote too much!

Folk/fun/kids: Popple http://www.popple.us/ Catholic Kids Worship (see itunes or http://www.independentbands.com/)
Rock (think Fall Out Boy, Greenday, All American Rejects- style ): Last Day http://www.lastdayonline.com/, Critical Mass http://www.catholicrock.com/
Contemporary Catholic music you might hear Mary Pat play on Sunday's at teen mass: Tom Booth www.spiritandsong.com/artists/tombooth, Matt Maher http://www.mattmahermusic.com/,
Country/bluegrass: http://www.mariebellet.com/
Praise and worship (mellow): http://www.gretchen-harris.com/, http://www.jonniven.com/ (both mellow and upbeat)

If you have questions or suggestions about "Make the Connection", feel free to contact me!
Peace of Christ to you!

Kerry,
Thanks so much for another great post. I love Grapevine and my friend Susan Bailey - she is doing such great work.
Thanks for your call, which I will be playing in the "bonus" episode I will be doing this weekend.
Always so great to hear from you!
