Having just completed a 24-date virtual tour of major US venues, singer-songwriter Crys Matthews joins our very own Martyn Joseph tonight, energised by what she describes as “the good she’s been able to do”.
Now back in North Carolina, Crys comes to us tonight with all the soul and artistry, struggle and hopefulness of a modern-day Tracy Chapman. Only to compare her like that is not to do her justice.
Crys is an amazing artist. With a relaxed and easy style, she writes songs with a power and directness that connects deeply with all those who hear her.
This will be the last Rising show for a while now and you won’t want to miss it. Streaming for the first time direct to Youtube and Facebook tonight at 8pm.

OK, so we might not be coming together face-to-beautiful-face at the end of August in Boughton's grounds, but we will still be coming together for a virtual weekend-long shindig. Wild at Heart might not be happening, but #WildAtHome🌱 will be. Also there will be t-shirts. So get your diaries out now and make sure you have cleared the decks for Saturday and Sunday, 29-30th August. Plans, schemes and dreams are being drawn up as you read this, and we'll share them with you very soon, but for now save the date and tell your friends... ... See MoreSee Less

Back on 18th June, we had the privilege of hosting a transatlantic conversation with black Christians from the UK and US on the church’s complicity in racial injustice. It was an amazing conversation, hosted by Greenbelt trustee, Chine McDonald, together with Anthony G Reddie, Selina Stone, Jemar Tisby & Danté Stewart.
We learned such a lot and still have so much more to learn, change and do. We’re sharing the stream again today, along with a resources sheet of books, people, causes and organisations that the panellists referenced in the conversation that we’ve put together so you can take things deeper and follow the threads.
Watch the stream below. Download the resources here: bit.ly/gbresource-blm

We've got a very special Rising show on Tuesday 7th July. Our friend @martynjosephwales is welcoming the brilliant @crysmatthewsmusic onto his show and... We. Cannot. Wait. Jokingly referring to herself – the black lesbian daughter of a preacher – as "the poster child for intersectionality", Crys is the real deal.
Bringing us her Stateside stew of Americana, folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass and funk, it promises to be a really special show, so we hope you'll join Martyn and us at 8pm on our YouTube and Facebook channels to welcome her to Greenbelt, #WildAtHome🌱.
To get a feel for her music, check out Crys tearing up We Must Be Free (youtu.be/T45NF6DT6Zs), accompanied by the wondrous sound of the Congressional Chorus, or her Battle Hymn for an Army of Lovers (youtu.be/8ACy_xH94Ao). ... See MoreSee Less
