Emmylou Harris performs on day 3 of C2C Country to Country festival at The O2 Arena on March 11, 2018 in London, England. 

Mary Chapin Carpenter, Steve Earle, Shawn Colvin and Lila Downs are all participating as well.

Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Steve Earle are among the artists who will take part in The Lantern Tour: Concerts for Migrant and Refugee Families.     

Proceeds will go to the Women’s Refugee Commission in support of families seeking safety at the United States-Mexico border. Also on the bill are Graham Nash, Shawn Colvin and Lila Downs.      

The five-date tour begins at Nashville’s City Winery on Oct. 23 and concludes at New York’s Town Hall on Oct. 28. Other dates include the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 25; the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, New Jersey, on Oct. 26; and Boston’s Orpheum Theater on Oct. 27.     

"The Women's Refugee Commission has been on the front lines in advocating for the safety of women and children," said Harris in a statement. "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."      

Founded in 1989, the WRC advocates for the rights of women, children and youth displaced by conflict and crisis. The organization has been on the forefront fighting President Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy on the Mexican/U.S. border that has resulted in children being separated from their parents coming over the border. Funds toward the concerts will go toward ending family separation and detention.
