Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, & Buddy Miller Plan North American Tour


NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — Emmylou Harris announced that she will be hitting the road this fall with Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller & The Milk Carton Kids for a tour of North American tour.

The 11-stop tour, Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees, will raise awareness for the unprecedented worldwide refugee crisis which has seen more than 65 million people fleeing violence and political repression.

“After witnessing firsthand the work of JRS in Ethiopia this past June, I have never been more inspired to champion such a critical cause,” said Emmylou Harris, 13-time Grammy winning artist. “The better angels of our nature call upon us to act with compassion and not with fear in the face of so much suffering.”
