Raleigh, N.C. — A group of North Carolina performers are teaming up for a three day concert to benefit North Carolina artists.
Anthony Hamilton, 9th Wonder, Ben Folds, The Hamiltones, Jim Lauderdale, Tift Merritt, Steep Canyon Rangers, Chatham County Line, Joe Troop of Che Apalache and Petey Pablo will participate in "Under One Roof" on April 24 through April 26.
The concert will live stream 8 to 9 p.m. each night on Twitch and Facebook.
The event will raise money for the North Carolina Arts Foundation, which will distribute funds to nonprofit arts organizations in the state that have established relief funds for artists in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s important to inspire, instill and give back to home. Home is where you first learn the value of trust. It’s important to be there for our own,” Grammy Award-winner Anthony Hamilton said via a press release.. “Our artists deserve to be heard and appreciated. Carolina has some awesome talent.”
Performers will be doing original songs and covers. More artists are expected to be added to the lineup.
The event was organized by Come Hear North Carolina and Charlotte-based entertainment publication CLTure.
