BONNIE RAITT, INDIGO GIRLS TO CO-HEADLINE HONOR THE EARTH BENEFIT CONCERT- PROCEEDS WILL SUPPORT RACIAL JUSTICE WORK IN ND & MN EXTRACTION ZONES

Grammy-award winning artists Bonnie Raitt and Indigo Girls 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, Minn.  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 presale tickets and special benefit seats (including some that include a post-show reception with the artists) may be purchased beginning Tuesday, April 25, 10 a.m. at www.bonnieraitt.com. Presale tickets are also available through the Jade Presents App Powered by Happy Harry’s Bottle Shops, starting Thursday, April 27, from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., password protected, online only. Tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, April 28, at 11 a.m. Purchase tickets at JadePresents.com, at the Tickets300 box office (300 Broadway, Fargo; open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) or by calling (866)300-8300. Additional fees may apply.

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, renewable 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 GirlsUlaliMedicine for the PeopleBonnie RaittJohn TrudellIndigenousKeith Secola and Jackson Browne, and works to support the restoration of Native culture and ecosystems in partnership with communities throughout North America.
