Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, and Emmylou Harris will be among the artists performing on "The Lantern Tour: Concerts For Migrant And Refugee Families" this fall. Nonesuch.com posted: "The five dates will play in support of families seeking safety at the United States-Mexico border. Proceeds will go to the Women's Refugee Commission, and will also feature appearances by Steve Earle, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Shawn Colvin, and Lila Downs." So far, the trek will play Nashville, Tennessee; Washington, D.C.; Collingswood, New Jersey; Boston, Massachusetts; and New York City.

Emmylou Harris said in a statement publicizing the dates: "The Women's Refugee Commission has been on the front lines in advocating for the safety of women and children. Their work is as remarkable as it is critical, especially right now. It is my honor to partner with this incredible organization and to bring my friends along for what I know will be a powerful tour."

Graham Nash told us that in recent years Americans are starting to wake up to what has happened to the political process and beyond: "They're beginning to realize that the powers that be are controlling every aspect of their lives. Y'know, people say, 'Where are the protest songs? There's no protest songs on the radio anymore!' That's because they don't want 'em on the radio! You can name the people that own the world's media probably on two hands. They don't want people rising up. They, they just want bread and circuses. Give 'em something to look at, like Kim Kardashian's ass, and give 'em some bread to eat, and they'll just leave us alone while we rob them." :
