Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars
Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 at 7:30pm
Rising like a phoenix out of the ashes of war and becoming one of Africa’s most recognized bands with worldwide fans, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars perform uplifting songs of hope, faith and joy. They're a potent example of the redeeming power of music performing on some of the world’s most prestigious venues including Bonnaroo and Central Park SummerStage; opening for Aerosmith; appearing on Oprah; earning praise and backing from Sir Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Ice Cube and Angelina Jolie among others. SLRA's inspiring life affirming story was the subject of a critically acclaimed documentary and they are celebrating their 10th Anniversary with their new CD 'Libation.'
