Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Graham Nash & More Unite For The Lantern Tour
The worlds of music and political action will come together this fall an impressive group of singer-songwriters will head out together for The Lantern Tour. The five-date run of benefit shows is to “bring together art and advocacy to stand with families seeking safety at the U.S. border and the nightmare that has become their existence” with proceeds set to benefit the Women’s Refugee Commission.
The short tour will feature acoustic sets from Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Graham Nash, Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Steve Earle and Lila Down. The Lantern Tour will run from October 23 – 28 and kicks off at City Winery in Nashville before moving our nation’s capital for a night at the Warner Theatre. The tour will then head to the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, New Jersey, up to Boston the following evening to the Orpheum Theatre before closing things out in New York City at Town Hall.

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 go to benefit the Women’s Refugee Commission.
