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.

Whole Lotta Warren Haynes Going On!

Warren Haynes is one of the most versatile musicians in popular music today. He is equally at home playing with The Allman Bros., The Grateful Dead and his own band Gov’t. Mule. He excels at jamming in so many genres.

Warren Haynes is readying his third “solo” album for release on July 24th. I find the designation solo album misleading because the recording features Railroad Earth extensively throughout the tracks. I prefer to call Ashes and Dust a collaboration.

If you have ever seen Warren Haynes perform live you know he is open to many inputs.  He is inviting and inclusive with everyone he performs with.

Also bringing their talents to Ashes and Dust is the vibrant artist Grace Potter, who joins Haynes for the only duet on the album on “Gold Dust Woman”.  The album additionally features singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin and harmonica player Mickey Raphael who each make an appearance on “Wanderlust.” Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones play on “Spots of Time,” a song written by Haynes and Phil Lesh from the Grateful Dead.

I am looking forward to owning this album and have included the first track featured on Sound Cloud, “Spots of Time”.

But wait to add icing to the cake, Warren Haynes and Railroad Earth were filmed performing on PBS Front and Center. Check your local PBS programming guides to catch this superb concert starting in June.

I am looking forward to Warren Haynes appearing at The Gathering of the Vibes 20th Anniversary Special this summer in my backyard here in Bridgeport, CT.

Love my Vibe Tribe can’t wait to hang with y’all again 🙂
