Pick of the Day: Tokens at Lipscomb University

Posted By on Thu, Feb 24, 2011 at 5:01 AM

Where: Collins Alumni Auditorium, Lipscomb University
When: 7:30 p.m. Thu., Feb. 24

Imagine Garrison Keillor and monk/activist Thomas Merton meeting up to swap mandolin licks, and you’ll have a sense for what Tokens is all about. The radio show records its first episode of the year tonight, and the lineup promises to keep things lively.

Ricky Skaggs’ new album Mosaic marks his fifth decade in music. He’ll be joining the Tokens house band for what is sure to be a ’grass-kicking shred fest. Painter and writer Makoto Fujimura will be on hand to discuss his new book Refractions: A Journey of Faith, Art and Culture, and Jenny Littleton will sit in with the Tokens Radio Players to round out the show — Littleton is best known for her sassy songbirding in the local cult musical The Doyle and Debbie Show.

Purchase tickets through all Ticketmaster outlets or at 966-7075.
