Appalachian Voices:: Live Video and Summer Tour Dates

Kentuckians Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket, singer-songwriter Daniel Martin Moore and cellist and vocalist Ben Sollee will embark on a nine date “Appalachian Voices” tour in an effort to raise public awareness of the practice of Mountaintop Removal coal mining throughout Appalachia. The upcoming tour marks the first time the three will perform together since recording the 11-song album, Dear Companion, in 2009. A portion of the proceeds from Dear Companion as well as the upcoming tour benefit Appalachian Voices will go towards the problems surrounding central and southern Appalachian Mountains.

The video links below are from an impromptu performance over the weekend at The Monkey Wrench where Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Daniel Martin Moore, Ben Sollee, Justin Craig of These United States, and Cheyenne Marie Mize performed selections from Dear Companion.
