We are excited to announce the live airing of “An Evening With Healing Appalachia” Friday, February, 12th 8pm EST through Facebook & YouTube.
We missed you this past year. Instead of waiting until we can see you in Lewisburg again, Healing Appalachia will stream highlights from the sold-out 2019 concert along with exclusive interviews recorded during the festival and throughout the past three months.
Revisit music from
Jeremy Short of Short & Company
& Senora May
Exclusive interviews with Healing Appalachia founder Charles Hatcher, co-founder Ian Thornton, and music therapist & addiction specialist Margaret Moore, Ph.D.
Although live music has taken a pause until further notice, the opioid epidemic has only increased during the pandemic. According to the CDC, the overdose death rate hit a record 81,000 deaths in the U.S. - a 38.4% increase from June 2019 to May 2020. Lockdowns have added to the challenge, especially for those who face depression and other mental health disorders.
We ask everyone to check in on friends and look out for one another!
We hope that this viewing will stir a sense of community and share the remembered magic of gathering for live entertainment while also bringing awareness, empathy and action to Healing Appalachia & Hope in the Hills as we lift up Appalachia’s recovery community.
Tune in for the live premiere on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
