Concert with Bonnie Raitt to Benefit Honor the Earth ~ Fan Pre-Sale starts Tues 4/25

Grammy-award winning artists Indigo Girls and Bonnie Raitt will co-headline a benefit concert for the non-profit indigenous environmental justice organization Honor the Earth on September 1st at Bluestem Amphitheater in Moorhead, MN. Emily Saliers and Amy Ray of the folk-rock duo Indigo Girls co-founded the organization with Native author and activist Winona LaDuke in 1993. Raitt and Indigo Girls have a history of joining forces to further Honor the Earth’s mission to create awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop needed financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using music, the arts, the media, and Indigenous wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on the Earth and be a voice for those not heard.

Special guest Annie Humphrey will open the show. The singer/songwriter and visual artist does community outreach to bring awareness about the six pipelines that run through the Leech Lake Reservation in Northern Minnesota where she resides. Fan Pre-Sale tickets and Special Benefit Seats (including some that include a post-show reception with the artists) may be purchased beginning Tuesday, April 25th at 10am at bonnieraitt.com. Ticket prices are $86.50/$56.50/$36.50 plus taxes/fees and $150/$200 plus taxes/fees for Special Benefit Seating. Tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, April 28 at 10 a.m.

Honor the Earth has actively opposed new fossil fuel infrastructure in the northern Great Plains region, including pipelines, oil extraction and mining projects, and advocates for transition to sustainable clean energy production and a culturally-based economy. The organizing work around the pipeline protests at Standing Rock is ongoing as there are over 700 water protectors still facing charges in the North Dakota court system. Honor’s work in ND continues with a spotlight on anti-racism education and civil rights advocacy with a keen interest in renewable energy and local food systems. Honor the Earth has hosted over one hundred benefit concerts, including many with the Indigo Girls, Ulali, Medicine for the People, Bonnie Raitt, John Trudell, Indigenous, Keith Secola, and Jackson Browne, and works to support the restoration of Native culture and ecosystems in partnership with communities throughout North America.

    Will this concert be recorded, with discs available later? We are an older couple living like 300 miles away. We’d be willing to purchase any recording and make an additional donation to the cause.

    Please consider performing at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks Michigan. It’s a small town on the east side of Lake Michigan with a large population of supporters of your cause. The Acorn Theater is located in an old corset/buggie whip factory.

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.

    However think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial
    in its field. Fantastic blog!

    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i
    was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so
    any help is very much appreciated.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
