Since its inauguration in 2008, the King Institute for Faith and Culture has sought to foster conversation about things that matter, joining town and gown as we bring guests who work at the intersections of Christian faith and culture: artists and ministers, scholars and writers, politicians and prophets.
Performing songwriter Jason Harrod has lived and worked in Boston, Brooklyn, and North Carolina, both touring and serving as musical director in a church on the Lower East Side.
His songwriting and performance are heralded: he has won MerleFest’s Chris Austin Songwriting competition for bluegrass and the North Carolina Songwriters Co-Op contest; he has been selected as a spotlight performer at the annual Healdsburg Guitar festival, and he was awarded a fellowship by the International Arts Movement. In 2012, Jason received a Fulbright grant to teach songwriting to students in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Image journal says of him, “What singer-songwriter Jason Harrod does best is turn daily moments numinous. Quite simply, Harrod’s imagination is for this world; he finds deep secrets in ordinary places.”
