IFA event: The Arcadian Wild

On Tuesday, February 12 the Institute for Faith and the Arts welcomed The Arcadian Wild to the O. O. Emmons Stage. They performed original music and answered student questions about the songwriting process and how their faith informs their work.

The Arcadian Wild began in the fall of 2013 when a few choir students from Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN met up after class to jam for the afternoon. Five years later, the band now consists of guitarist Isaac Horn, mandolinist Lincoln Mick, and fiddler Paige Park. With roots running deep in formal vocal music, and influenced by progressive bluegrass and folk artists, The Arcadian Wild explores a unique acoustic sound that is simultaneously unified and diverse, offering up songs of invitation; calls to come and see, to find refuge and rest, or to journey and wonder.
