Emmylou Harris Headlines Women’s Refugee Commission Benefit at Capital One Hall

The Women’s Refugee Commission is presenting a series of concerts next weekend to raise awareness for gender equality and humanitarian efforts around the world.

Emmylou Harris headlines “The Lantern Tour” on Oct. 28 at Capital One Hall in Tysons, Virginia, before hitting the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall in Munhall, Pennsylvania on Oct. 29 and the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, New Jersey on Oct. 30.

“The Women’s Refugee Commission has been working for decades on behalf of refugees, especially women and children,” Harris told WTOP. “We’re hoping to shine a light on the crisis that’s happening with displaced refugees around the world. There are probably over 60 million displaced persons now, which is more than after World War II.”
