NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Lantern Tour II: Concerts for Migrant and Refugee Families will feature Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Jerry Douglas, Steve Earle, Jackson Browne, Buddy and Julie Miller, and Amy Ray at War Memorial Auditorium on Jan. 11.
Tickets for The Lantern Tour II are on sale now at WMArocks.com, by phone at 615-782-4030, and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St.
The tour reunites an all-star lineup of Grammy-nominated and award-winning musicians to benefit the Women’s Refugee Commission and its work on behalf of migrant and asylum-seeking families.
“The Women’s Refugee Commission is on the front lines in advocating for the safety of displaced women and children,” says Emmylou Harris, a supporter of the organization. “I am thrilled to continue this important partnership and to bring my music friends along for another powerful tour in the coming year.”
“It’s an honor to be joining Emmylou on this tour as we stand with migrant and asylum-seeking families at the southern U.S. border,” says Grammy Award-winning musician and Indigo Girls co-founder Amy Ray. “Everyone has the right to be safe and to keep their children safe.”
The Women's Refugee Commission has a long history of documenting conditions for asylum-seeking women and children at the U.S. border and advocating for their rights and protection. Since the Trump administration came into power, WRC has taken an even more robust leadership role in identifying human rights violations.
“We go into detention centers to hear directly from women and children about how these policies are devastating their lives,” said WRC Executive Director Sarah Costa. “Right now, more than ever, we need voices from across the country speaking out in support of human rights, which is why this tour is so important. Together, we can make a difference.”
