Summerland musicians Linnea Good and David Jonsson, along with their three children, will bring their music to India this winter.
Good and Jonsson are leaving for India this weekend, while their children will join them near the end of November.
While in India, they will spend some of their time at the Christian Medial College Hospitals, where they performed the last time they visited India, early in 2013.
“We have friends we’re going back to,” Good said. “When we left, our chaplains and teachers told us to come back as soon as possible, to build on what we had done together. So, with elation, we prepare now for a return visit.”
In addition to their performances, they will also work in collaboration with musicians in India.
Good said the collaborative work can be confusing and anxious, but she expects it will be rewarding as well.
When they first visited India in 2013, their work was exclusively with the hospitals. This time, they will also sing in churches and meet with other foreigners working in the country. They will return to Canada in early January.
She is inviting people to contribute to the expenses of the trip. There is a donation link on her website at linneagood.com.
Good, a Christian singer-songwriter, has worked as a professional musician for 27 years. She and Jonsson have been working together in music-making for the past two decades.
In addition to her national and international work, Good is also involved in music in Summerland, including her work with the Summerland Children’s Choir.
