Appalachian Music Concert


Location: Mainstage Theatre

Sponsored by the Center for Social Concerns

Performers include Tom Breiding of The Appalachian Institute at Wheeling Jesuit University and The Emancipators, an acoustic ensemble based in east Tennessee specializing in original and cover tunes that promote peace, joy, love, social and Earth justice. Their music is informed by struggles for justice in Appalachia and beyond. It ranges from the political to the personal, traditional to contemporary, with a common concern for building the beloved community through music. They invite folks to sing along and believe singing together for peace and justice is a subversive act.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Cosponsored with the Higgins Labor Program.
