Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees
Emmylou Harris, singer/songwriter, has announced a fall tour featuring a talented group of musicians sitting in during select shows.
Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller and The Milk Carton Kids will be working with Harris as she travels across North America to help raise awareness about helping refugee crisis in Europe and beyond.
The 11-stop tour, Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees, will showcase Harris’ talented live performances, as well as help display the urgent need to support the unprecedented worldwide refugee crisis.
After winning 13 GRAMMY awards, Harris continues to use her music as a tool to help people from all walks of life.
The Jesuit Refugee Service chapter of USA (JRS) have informed the public that it will host Emmylou Harris’ tour in support of the organization’s Global Education Initiative,. This program started in 2015 and endorsed by Pope Francis. JRS seeks to double the number of refugees served in its educational programs to 240,000 by 2020.
“After witnessing firsthand the work of JRS in Ethiopia this past June, I have never been more inspired to champion such a critical cause. The better angels of our nature call upon us to act with compassion and not with fear in the face of so much suffering.” – Emmylou Harris
