Crys Matthews

A southeastern North Carolina native who now calls Herndon, Virginia, home, CRYS MATTHEWS blends Americana, folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass and funk into a bold, complex performance steeped in traditional melodies and punctuated by honest, original lyrics.

Down the Road Together

A Ministry of Seekers Church

The Down the Road project emerged in 2018 from a series of meetings within the Seekers Church community in which we discussed our hopes, fears, plans, and ideas about how we might be a more supportive community for those among us who are dealing with issues of aging or disability in themselves or others.

The first accomplishment of this project has been to create a website (www.downtheroad.life) to provide a forum for Seekers to share information, ideas, resources, plans, and feelings about their own later years or those of their friends and families. The website is open to all, except for the Seekers Chat Room, which is for Seekers only.…
