Jars of Clay to Perform at Greenville College

Greenville College proudly welcomes the multiplatinum-selling music group Jars of Clay to campus for a concert Friday, May 26 at 8:30 p.m. in Whitlock Music Center.

The four-person musical group Jars of Clay was founded at Greenville College and is best known for their breakout song, “Flood,” which was the first of 14 number one radio singles and the beginning of a career spanning two decades. The band has earned three GRAMMY Awards, seven BMI Music Awards, 17 Dove Awards, and four American Music Award nominations for songwriting and performance.

Greenville College is excited to welcome these four talented alumni back to campus. The concert is free.

Jars of Clay founder and front man Dan Haseltine will also speak at both Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 27, in Crum Recreation Center on campus. The first at 10 a.m. recognizes graduates of the Briner School of Business, the School of Education and the School of Adult Studies. A 3 p.m. ceremony honors graduates from the School of Arts and Sciences, School of Professional Studies and the Bastian School of Theology, Philosophy and Ministry.

Haseltine also founded Blood:Water, a non-profit organization that partners with local civil servants to help end the clean water and HIV/AIDS crises in Africa. He currently works as founder and senior development officer at Blood:Water.
