Band Together NC is a nonprofit organization that uses live music as a platform for social change. Since its inception in 2001 following the tragedy of 9/11, the organization has grown to become the largest annual charitable music festival in the Southeast, donating nearly $5.5 million to local charities.
This year’s Band Together Main Event on May 14 at Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh will feature bluegrass favorite Trampled by Turtles and Americana band The Devil Makes Three.
The 2016 goal is to raise $1 million for Kidznotes. More info at bandtogethernc.org, or purchase tickets through etix.
