Event Details

Once upon a time, there were two stubborn musicians that had promised to be one, but were living for themselves. When their marriage was on the verge of destruction, Jesus had mercy on them and built them up, rooting them in Himself, growing them and changing them into something beautiful.

The Growing Roots was born.

Scott and Lisa Barry are both from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. They met as music majors in college, went on to marry, and eventually turned their struggling marriage and music over to Jesus. What came of it? Besides great faith and an inseparable best-friendship? Rootsy acoustic rock, creative lyrics and songwriting with a Biblical base, bluesy flavor, some soul, lots of harmony and an occasional twang. The unique melding of Scott’s and Lisa’s different musical styles is a testament to God’s goodness and an expression of oneness…both with God and with each other.

Parents of seven, Scott and Lisa are homeschooling their family in an old farmhouse in the country, where there’s plenty of room to explore. When the kids are in bed, Mom and Dad rock out in the kitchen and hope the kids sleep through it. Their first single “Right on Time” was released in 2016, and they’re currently working on completion of their first full-length album. The Growing Roots are following wherever God leads them: house concerts, book stores, churches or festivals, proclaiming Christ to whomever God puts in front of them.
