Background from Sanctuary Sessions: Trad Music for Civil Rights

"We decided to organize this benefit concert because of a shared feeling of dismay among Boston Irish musicians at this administration's complete disregard for social dignity, collective responsibility, women's rights, immigrants' rights, a working wage, blatant federal funding abuse, and much more.

We decided to mobilize Irish musicians across the country to organize musical events on the same day (March 5) in a show of solidarity, believing in the equality of all members of society, and believing too that targeting or scapegoating certain peoples for political and economic gain is abhorrent.

We decided to donate all proceeds to the ACLU who strive to protect the rights of all."
