Photo Gallery: James McBride & The Good Lord Bird Band at Town Hall Seattle
James McBride and the Good Lord Bird Band played a rousing performance that brought the audience to their feet on Monday, November 9 at Town Hall Seattle. Guided by McBride’s novel, he and bandmates Show Tyme Brooks (drums and vocals), Trevor Exter (bass and vocals), Adam Faulk (piano and vocals), and Keith Robinson (guitar and vocals) filled the minds and hearts of the hall with sounds that added a whole new layer to the words of The Good Lord Bird.
The evening’s program was opened by West Seattle High School student Lily Trinneer. Lily read her poem “The Hymnal,” which she wrote while working with WITS Writer-in-Residence Daemond Arrindell.
