Dave Matthews, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris & Patty Griffin Honor Tom Petty In Seattle


The Moore Theatre in Seattle hosted the first night of the Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees Tour featuring Dave Matthews, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin. The singer-songwriters collaborated on a cover honoring Tom Petty as part of the charity event supporting Jesuit Refugee Service’s Global Education Initiative.

Matthews, Earle, Harris and Griffin worked up a joint cover of the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ hit “Refugee.” The musicians traded lead vocal duties on the verses to the classic off of the 1979 LP Damn The Torpedoes.

Video footage of the collaborative tribute and Matthews and Harris performing “My Antonia” are presented below:
