The Lantern Tour: Concerts for Migrants and Refugee

Music continues to fight to defeat social injustice.

The Lantern Tour: Concerts for Migrants and Refugees

The Lantern Tour 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 help the Women’s Refugee Commission.

Nashville and New York tickets go on sale this Thursday July 26th
D.C., Collingswood, and Boston tickets go on sale this Friday, July 27th

The musicians appearing will vary at each show on the tour.

I love a beautifully sung duet, a musical composition for two performers. The sweet harmony of voices joined in unison, trading off song verses which enchants the music of our heart.

Willie Nelson recently released To All the Girls…  a series of duets recorded by Nelson with prominent female country singers. The performers featured on the eighteen tracks of the album are Dolly PartonMiranda LambertLoretta LynnCarrie Underwood,The Secret SistersRoseanne CashSheryl CrowWynonna JuddAlison Krauss, Melonie Cannon, Mavis StaplesNorah JonesShelby LynneEmmylou Harris, Lily Meola, Brandi Carlile, Tina Rose; and his daughter, Paula Nelson.

Congratulations Willie Nelson.
