Get those tickets now to see critically acclaimed performing artist Andrew Peterson in concert March 1 in Liberal.
Peterson’s most recent album, “Light for the Lost Boy,” was named by USA Today critic Brian Mansfield as one of his top 10 favorite albums of 2012. “Light for the Lost Boy” was also named the No. 5 album for 2012 by Christianity Today.
Peterson, who lives just outside of Nashville with his wife, Jamie, and three children, has toured widely for more than 10 years and has released a number of contemporary Christian albums. His acoustic sound appeals to a wide audience, but according to his website, Peterson said his main goal is not “thunderous applause and piles of cash.” Instead, he said, “I want to use my gifts to tell the truth, and to tell it as beautifully as I can.”
A prolific writer, Peterson pens not just song lyrics, but also novels. He is the author of “The Wingfeather Saga,” a fantasy/adventure series for young adult readers, published by Waterbrook Press, a subsidiary of Random House.
