As we’re gearing up for our summer waterway campaigns, we got to thinkin’…what better way to give back and celebrate the cause than to jam out with our band out? We decided to put together our first-ever summer concert series benefiting Waterkeepers® featuring one of our favorite bluegrass bands – Railroad Earth.
The concert will hit the road this June 20 – 24 touring the Southeast and tickets will go on sale this Friday, 4/20 (shocking right?). Tickets range from $20-25 depending on the venue and you can get ’em directly on the venues’ websites. Tour dates and cities include:
- Wednesday, June 20 – Raleigh, NC at Lincoln Theatre
- Thursday, June 21 – Charlotte, NC at The Fillmore
- Friday, June 22 – Charleston, SC at The Music Farm
- Sunday, June 24 – Jacksonville, FL at Freebird Live
Of course all proceeds and sales will go back to the local Waterkeepers® in each city including: The Catawba Riverkeeper®, The Neuse Riverkeeper®, The Charleston Waterkeeper® and The St. John’s Riverkeeper®.
Make sure you like the event on Facebook to keep up with concert details, and also ’cause we’re giving y’all a chance to win VIP tickets and meet-and-greet opportunities with the band leading up to the shows.
Our conservation efforts began nearly a decade ago through our partnership with the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper® in Atlanta, and have since grown to include work with nine Waterkeeper® organizations throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Alabama. To date, we’ve helped raise more than $500,000 to help protect and preserve these waterways and we look forward to blowing it out again this year.
Hope to see y’all there!
