Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne & more touring to benefit migrant & refugee families
Last year, Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne and more went on “The Lantern Tour” which benefited the Women’s Refugee Commission. They’re going to do it again with dates in 2019 and 2020, featuring Harris, Browne, Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, The Mastersons, Thao Nguyen, and David Pulkingham. Here’s a little more info about The Lantern Tour II and the cause:
The Lantern Tour II brings together art and advocacy to stand with families seeking safety at the U.S. border and the nightmare that has become their existence. From separating families to detaining them to making it harder for people to claim asylum, migrant and refugee families – including children – are under attack by the Trump administration. The Women’s Refugee Commission is at the front lines – at the border and in detention centers – to protect the rights and lives of women and children fleeing danger and crisis. The concerts will feature an evening of acoustic music by legends in the music industry that will allow us all to unite our voices in song and solidarity. Proceeds will go to benefit the Women’s Refugee Commission.
So Far there have been two dates announced: Washington, DC’s Warner Theatre on November 5 and NYC’s Town Hall on November 6 (minus Steve Earle). Tickets for both go on sale Friday, September 13 at 10 AM. Stay tuned for more dates.
