Crossing Borders Concert to Benefit Children and Their Families Seeking Asylum

Crossing Borders Concert to Benefit Children and Their Families Seeking Asylum

Local artists Leo Hawkins and Nici Peper will perform, as well as other local musicians at Olivet Congregational Church, 1850 Iglehart Avenue in St. Paul, Saturday, September 8, beginning at 7 p.m.

Leo Hawkins has performed with Sounds of Blackness, at a tribute to Curtis Mayfield, and also performed while in the military during the Vietnam War. Nici Peper, a soulful singer-songwriter, influenced by gospel music and storytellers, has recorded in Nashville, and also won the title “Most Authentic Artist” in Minneapolis in a contest in 2016. Also joining us are Jim Walsh, a Twin Cities music journalist, author, songwriter and musician and Maya Elena, a songwriter and singer whose music is lyrical, imaginative, and embracing. A hair of folk, a dash of jazz, a sprinkle of sass, this soulful songbird evades solitary description and time signatures when she's apart from her band, Illusion Valley. Performing as well will be Justin Jay Arnold, a respected songwriter from the Chippewa Valley who expresses vivid lyrics sung by a soulful, honest heart.

Join us prior to the concert for a Latin themed buffet along with music performed by the Liliana and Harold duo starting at 6 p.m. Liliana and Harold have been performing together for over 20 years, beginning in Venezuela where they met, and continued performing Latin music throughout their travels across the Mediterranean islands. Their music is a blend of Latin sounds and world music.

All are welcome! A free will offering will be collected to benefit the children and their families by providing legal aid and advocacy for immigrants.
