Cat’s Cradle and Love Chapel Hill are hosting “The Sound of Solidarity Concert” on Saturday, which benefits refugees.
The show features David Wimbish of The Collection, Delta Son and Jess Klein. The proceeds will be received by the Refugee Community Partnership.
Delta Son is a blues-rock band from Wadsworth, Ohio. Klien, who lives in Hillsborough, is a singer-songwriter who focuses her sound in Americana and roots music. She’s been performing since 1998.
Sophomore Madison Hurst, an employee at the Refugee Community Partnership and an attendee at Love Chapel Hill, said both the Refugee Community Partnership and Love Chapel Hill are concerned with uniting the community in spite the recent division.
“They don’t just want to raise money to help local refugees and leave it at that,” Hurst said.
“Both Love Chapel Hill and Refugee Community Partnership deeply want to build friendships and community and do life with people.”
She stressed the importance of creating a safe space for those who are affected by pressing issues.
“I think it’s amazing to have a night to stand together and let people know that they are supported and valued,” Hurst said. “It brings humanity back into the discussion, and helps people feel safe and protected in our communities.”
