The crowd-pleasing musical talents of the Rev. Tim Craven and his wife, Kim, will be featured April 23, at 2 p.m., at the Eicher Arts Center, 409 Cocalico St. in Ephrata Borough’s Grater Park. Admission is free.

The Cravens’ musical numbers will include John Denver’s “Country Roads,” traditional American folk songs, gospel songs and Craven’s original compositions such as “Old Yankee Town.”

Tim and Kim, who have performed as members of the Craven Family Band, will be joined by a third musician, Dan Sensenig, for part of the April 23 concert.

Tim Craven is pastor of Mellingers Evangelical Lutheran Church, Schoeneck. He has been a musician and singer, as well as a minister, for decades. He says catchy musical compositions are part of the continuing appeal of the Cravens’ repertoire, and that for some of the songs, such as “One Day at a Time, Sweet Jesus,” the lyrics are important to audience members.

Craven said it’s great to be performing again at the historic Eicher House:

“The acoustics are really good,” he said.

The non-profit Eicher Arts Center Inc. is hosting the April 23 show as part of its series of admission-free Sunday afternoon entertainment programs Refreshments will be provided. Donations to the Eicher Center will be accepted.
