A one-day virtual concert event benefiting Tennessee Riverkeeper will feature performances from Jackson Browne, Moon Taxi, Jason Isbell, and more.
The Downstream virtual fundraiser will take place on Saturday, February 27th, and will feature “intimate” remote performances from John Oates (Hall & Oates), Ana Cristina Cash, John Carter Cash and Joe Cash, Brett Eldridge, Australian country music singer Morgan Evans, Michael Franti, Chris Janson, Lyle Lovett, Particle Kid, Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers), and more. The one-day event will also feature appearances of a mix of hosts including actors Alicia Silverstone and Cheryl Hines, comedian Bill Burr, Phish drummer Jon Fishman, Brittany Howard, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings.
The virtual event will stream live on the Tennessee Riverkeeper’s Facebook and YouTube pages beginning at 8 p.m. ET. The concert stream will be free to watch, though viewers will be encouraged to pay a minimum $25 donation with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Tennessee Riverkeeper, a citizen-supported organization that monitors polluters and their pollution permits, responds to citizen complaints, and utilizes other methods to further protect the Tennessee River and its tributaries.
