Puttin’ Down Roots: Bridge Refugee Benefit 

Join us for an unforgettable night of music performed by some of American folk music’s finest singers and songwriters! RB Morris, Malcolm Holcombe, Mary Gauthier, and Greg Brown are putting their individual talents together for a concert benefitting Bridge Refugee Services on December 12th. “Bridge Refugee Services is the only refugee resettlement agency in East Tennessee, and has been in operation since 1982. Our mission is to provide opportunities for refugees to rebuild their lives, after suffering persecution, so that they become productive, contributing members of the community. Through employment services, case management, school enrollment, and referral programs, we welcome and empower refugees to be self-sufficient. We strongly believe that the most vulnerable members of our community also have the most potential.
