The North Carolina Arts Council, Come Hear NC and CLTure have announced Under One Roof, a livestream benefit concert for North Carolina artists. The event will feature several notable North Carolina musicians spanning multiple genres and generations, including Anthony Hamilton, 9th Wonder, Ben Folds, Little Brother, Rapsody, Fantasia, The Hamiltones, Tift Merritt, Jim Lauderdale, Mandolin Orange, Steep Canyon Rangers, Chatham County Line, Joe Troop of Che Apalache, The Harvey Cummings Project, and more to be announced soon.

“It’s important to inspire, instill and give back to home. Home is where you first learn the value of trust. It’s important to be there for our own,” says Grammy Award-winning Anthony Hamilton on his motivation for participating. “Our artists deserve to be heard and appreciated. Carolina has some awesome talent.”

Under One Roof brings together some of North Carolina music’s biggest names to aid the community in these unprecedented times raising funds for the North Carolina Arts Foundation, a non-profit established in 2013 to promote the growth and sustainability of the N.C. Arts Council. The foundation will send all proceeds raised from Under One Roof to non-profit arts organizations in North Carolina that have established relief funds for artists in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under One Roof will broadcast live on the CLTure Twitch channel and official Facebook page from 8 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET on Friday, April 24, Saturday April 25, and Sunday April 26. You can donate to the North Carolina Arts Foundation here. Check out more in the official event page.
