Just a week from today, Appalachian Voices will present a night of music, speakers and inspiration featuring leading environmental activist Jeff Goodell and Grammy-award winner Kathy Mattea.

Artists for Appalachia celebrates Appalachian Voices’ 15th anniversary working to save the mountains of Appalachia. The event will be held in the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, Va., Thursday, June 21. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the program starts at 8 p.m.

Other bands at the event include Daniel Martin Moore, Michael Johnathon, The Honey Dewdrops, Trent Wagler and 2/3 Goat. Clara Bingham and Bill Haney, producer and director of “The Last Mountain,” will also speak.

Artists for Appalachia is free for Appalachian Voices members and $35 for non-members. The $35 ticket includes an Appalachian Voices membership. Reserved seating is available for $15.

Tickets are still available but expected to go fast!

Every year, Appalachian Voices is fortunate to assemble a phenomenal team of rockstar interns from numerous Appalachian and East Coast universities. Enjoy these posts from our interns.
