The Last Waltz Nashville: An All-Star Celebration of the Band’s Historic Farewell Concert took place on Saturday, November 23 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
This inaugural holiday event captured the excitement of The Band’s historic 1976 Thanksgiving concert with some of music’s biggest stars including Darius Rucker, Michael McDonald, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Nathaniel Rateliff, Warren Haynes, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson, Margo Price, Don Was, John Medeski, Cyril Neville, Dave Malone, Bob Margolin, Terence Higgins, and Mark Mullins & The Levee Horns. This once in a lifetime concert event included a rare, very special appearance by music icon Robbie Robertson of The Band.
Blackbird Presents continues its tradition of supporting important charities, particularly during the holiday season. Thus we are excited to have donated a portion of proceeds to Farm Aid http://farmaid.org, whose mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America, and Thistle Farms http://thistlefarms.org, a nonprofit social enterprise, based in Nashville, TN, dedicated to helping women survivors recover and heal from trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. In addition to supporting these organizations, Blackbird Presents will organize a donation drive to help support Second Harvest http://secondharvestmidtn.org, whose mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in Middle Tennessee.
