Last night’s Rabbit Room LIVE event was a huge success. Allow me to give a sincere thank you to everyone who came out and also to everyone who watched on Facebook. I can’t recall the last time I enjoyed a live event so much (The Battle of Franklin excepted!). It was an enormous privilege to be able to present the Rabbit Room community with the music and words of so many talented friends.
The evening served as a fitting picture of what we’ve spent the last decade doing—drawing folks together, creating music and books and pictures and stories and events, illuminating the gospel each in our own personal ways.
We can’t wait to see what the next decade brings, and we’ve already got great things planned for 2017. Rabbit Room Press will publish Jennifer Trafton’s brilliant Henry & the Chalk Dragon, and Doug McKelvey’s Every Moment Holy (with your help), and The Molehill Vol. 5, and maybe a surprise or two. Hutchmoot is going to grow in new and exciting ways (yet to be announced). We’re planning to partner with Art House to bring some great new events to Nashville. And we’ve got some exciting plans for the website that we hope to bring to fruition in the next year.
The future is bright. We’re grateful that each of you are helping us make it happen. Thank you for your support.
If you missed the show, you can still view the livestream via the Andrew Peterson Facebook page.
