Bread & Roses Blog

News and information from Bread & Roses, a non-profit organization that presents live music to bring hope, healing and joy to the community.

Administrative Coordinator/Communications Assistant: Bay Area native Carrie Sownie graduated with a degree in theater from UC Santa Cruz. She performed for two years afterwards as a clown for a circus. Carrie loves working with students and children and facilitated activities at UCSC for the artistic student community. She enjoys crafting, hiking and visiting her local farmer’s market. A lover of music, Carrie’s singing career extends only as far as whistling duets with her cockatiel Buster. Carrie is happy to support local artists and bring joy to our communities in need.

The Bread & Roses Staff love to share and know that people like to hear the stories of upliftment and encouragement through music. Feel free to share blog posts on social media, comment on them and rate posts. That helps!
