COWARDS No one ever says to come alive is like a death.

Fri 5 PM | Convo Hall 2
Sat 2 PM | Convo Hall 2


“If we die before we wake, that will be a shame.”

What happens if we never wake up to the beauty that is our authentic self?

Drew Heaton and Sandeigh Kennedy, who helm the musical collective Cedars, invite you into a discussion about an ongoing journey towards an authentic life and what making authentic art has looked for them so far. Growing up in the church, being rejected by the church, rejecting the church, and currently looking for the Divine everywhere, they will share music, art, and poetry in hopes to spark conversation and connection.


Cedars is more than a band – it is a collective of people who believe that beauty will change the world.

A mixture of formal education and self-training, Cedars is helmed by Drew Heaton and Sandeigh Kennedy. Together they direct Cedars and combine their talents to develop unique music with a genre-defying style. Poring over sounds and textures, they find the right instruments, both traditional and experimental, to tell their heartfelt and beautiful stories as honestly as possible. They believe that music and art are there to hold us up, to fill us and expand us, to make space for suffering and for celebration. They believe music and art allow us to heal and to spread joy and so often say what words cannot.

Through a mixture of song, poetry, art and conversation, this collective hopes to inspire & impact the world around them.
