Larry and Joe in Concert

Live Event
March 1: 7:00 pm

Join the students of PeaceJam and Windham World Affairs Council on Friday March 1, 2024 at Next Stage Arts in Putney, VT for a concert featuring Larry & Joe. We are proud to partner with Community Asylum Seekers Project, Next Stage Arts & Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (Welcoming Communities) for this event.
There will be a Q & A after the concert on the current status of immigration, asylum & refugees in the US & Vermont. Liv Berelson, Executive Director of Community Asylum Seekers will moderate.

Larry & Joe were destined to make music together. Larry Bellorín hails from Monagas, Venezuela, and is a legend of Llanera music. Joe Troop is from Winston-Salem and is a Grammy-nominated bluegrass and old-time musician.
Larry was forced into exile and is an asylum seeker in North Carolina. Joe, after a decade in South America, got stranded back in his stomping grounds during the pandemic. Larry works construction to make ends meet. Joe’s acclaimed “latingrass” band Che Apalache was forced into hiatus, and he shifted into action working with asylum-seeking migrants. This Durham-based duo performs a fusion of Venezuelan and Appalachian folk music on the harp, banjo, cuatro, fiddle, guitar, maracas, and upright bass to inspire joy and unity.

Your $20 ticket will help support Brattleboro Union High School’s PeaceJam club.
