Songs of Hope & Justice - An Annual NC Folk Fest Tradition
Music is a powerful medium through which people across the world address and amplify freedom and social justice movements.
Prior to each NC Folk Fest weekend, we host a special concert titled Songs of Hope & Justice to commemorate this musical legacy and to acknowledge the ongoing work and voices of today’s freedom and justice advocates.
Each year Songs of Hope & Justice features a unique lineup of several of North Carolina’s preeminent singers and songwriters who carry their individual musical styles into the performance – unifying their voices on stage through a common spirit and purpose. This year’s lineup includes:
- Laurelyn Dossett (host)
- Alice Gerrard
- Phil Wiggins
- Molly McGinn
- Riley Baugus
- Lelanja Harrington
- DaShawn and Wendy Hickman
- Chaisaray Shenck
- Scott Hinkle
- and more!
