Next month, singer/songwriter Lisa Weyerhaeuser will head out on a two-week concert tour in the United Kingdom in support of her latest solo effort, Caught in Time and Space, a tribute album that honors the late Larry Norman.
"Larry is one of the greatest influences in my musical life," said Lisa Weyerhaeuser in a recent press release. "When he went home to be with Jesus in February 2008, it affected me deeply. Because of the musical journey we had been on together over the years and because of our friendship, friends and fans reached out to me after his passing as a way, I think, of trying to connect with someone who made such an impact in their lives. People kept asking me about the record that Larry produced for me back in the 80's. I only had copies on cassette, so after some prompting, I decided to re-release the project that he and I had worked on so many years ago."
Along with the original Norman-produced songs, Caught in Time and Space also includes acoustic tracks of each of the original tunes as well as additional recordings, which have not been previously released. Charles Normal, Larry’s brother, arranged several tracks on the album, and heads up the U.S. division of Solid Rock Records, an endeavor that was founded by Larry.
One of the previously unreleased song is a duet of Larry’s song “Sweet Sweet Song of Salvation,” which was recorded on a tour Lisa and Larry did together in Indiana.
Caught in Time and Space also features a duet rendition of Norman’s classic “Great American Novel” and Weyerhaeuser offers a fresh rendition of the song, “U.F.O.”
The tour is set to kick off on October 3, with concert dates in Cambridge and Liverpool, among others. Released by Blue Myrtle Records, Caught in Time and Space marks Weyerhaeuser’s sixth solo project. For the latest news and tour dates, visit http://www.LisaWeyerhaeuser.com.
