BLUE announces spring concert

The John Brown University spring concert, hosted by BLUE, will feature All Sons & Daughters.

Junior Chris Hembree, director of BLUE, announced the name of the band today through BLUE’s social media.

The concert will take place on Feb. 9 in the Cathedral at 7 p.m.

BLUE and the University approached All Sons & Daughters, asking if they would be interested to make the University a stop on their tour.

“We think their style is liked by a good portion of students,” Hembree said. “They have an acoustic, folk sound.”

The Christian worship band has toured with groups such as Chris Tomlin, and the members have worked with bands such as Need to Breathe. The worship duo Leslie Jordan and David Leonard are worship ministers in Franklin, Tenn. Leonard attended the University years ago, so working out an agreement with the band was not that difficult.

All Sons & Daughters was formed in 2010 and has released three EPs and one album, “Season One.”

“One of our goals with all our concerts is to not only appeal to JBU but also the Northwest Arkansas community as a whole,” Hembree said. “We hope students and people in the community both come to listen to this fantastic band.”

Tickets will go on sale Jan. 1 at tables in Walker and the cafeteria as well as places around town. Students tickets will be $7 and tickets to adults will cost $12.
