Teaching Faculty

John Hermanson

John Hermanson is an award-winning songwriter and composer of the acclaimed acoustic duo Storyhill, as well as projects spanning orchestral, world, pop, rock, and indie genres. Raised in the Lutheran church and rooted in prophetic and mystical traditions, his songs raise ancient yet urgent questions about radical love and mutual responsibility, written in his compelling, distinctive folk style. This summer, John has a new collection of 25 hymns and liturgical songs drawn from his Isaiah record and liturgical music conceived in residencies and commissions in a variety of contexts including Holden Village where his Isaiah Service of Light is still in regular rotation.

      Holden Village is a community where your questions are valued and encouraged. Most programs led by visiting teaching faculty occur during the summer months. However, Holden also invites faculty to teach sessions for special events and retreats throughout the rest of the year.
