"I had the pleasure if hearing Hayden Carruth play for a church meal celebrating a significant ministry anniversary.  His music was delightful and the song selection fit the occasion very well.  His performance exuded warmth and a passion for sharing his music.  His engaging presence and musicality would enhance all kinds of group gatherings." 

Bishop David Bard, Michigan Conference, United Methodist Church

"The concert was so wonderful; thank you, Hayden!  We have heard nothing but good things from the congregation, all of whom enjoyed it very much.  We would love to have you back again next year!"

Ian Boley, Walled Lake First United Methodist Church, Walled Lake, MI

"We were pleased to have Hayden Carruth with us for a Sunday morning concert, May 7, 2017.  The concert was very well received and the congregation is anxious to have him back.  His incredible talent, message, and versatility were inspiring.  All ages thoroughly enjoyed his concert, and the rapport he established with the congregation was comfortable and natural.  I highly recommend Hayden for whatever venue a person or church might have in mind."

Deane Wyllys, Commerce First United Methodist Church, Commerce MI 

"Hayden put on a fantastic show for our senior residents.  He played some well-known oldies-but-goodies as well as some fun not-played-as-often songs!  His voice and musical talent are outstanding.  His array of musical instruments were beautiful and interesting.  We can't wait to have him back again  and  again !

Amy Jambeck, Activities Director, Independence Village of White Lake MI

"Hayden is an awesome musician to work with. His music creates an atmosphere of relaxation, perfect for our Festival and Lovey's Lavender Farm & Artisan Market."

Jennifer Vasich, Candice Watson

Original Michigan Lavender Festival, Armada MI

"I had the pleasure of a one-hour performance by Hayden at our church dinner last night. He shared songs and stories in music in a way that engaged a divers audience across a range of ages, ethnicities, and abilities. The familiar songs invited audience participation and the unfamiliar tunes touched people in their message and Hayden's presentation. Highlights were a rousing "Twelve Gates to the City" and a touching rendition of Lee Domann's "Howard Gray". I highly recommend Hayden for providing entertainment at your special event!"

Carter Cortelyou, Wayne First United Methodist Church, Wayne MI

People used to call it music before it was written down or recorded. Folks played and sang together on the  porch, in the parlor, or the barn.  When music got recorded and written, it was soon commercialized.  Many artists wanted to create something beautiful or exciting, but found the commercialization of their music discouraged their love for the music itself.
Hayden Carruth Music takes us to a time and place where people connect with themselves, with others, and with love and joy.  In a disconnected world, recognizing what brings us together is
so important.
Music makes it possible.
