In place of their usual Brave Troubadours show, Music to Life has collaborated with Vermont allies to launch BeUVT: an annual event series connecting music with social justice, and showcasing Vermont-based activist artists.
This year's BeUVT aims to inspire and engage LGBTQIA allies by celebrating and honoring Vermont's place in civil rights history, and amplifying the voices of local LGBTQIA musicians who are bringing change to their communities. Funds raised will help Music to Life and Big Heavy World launch Vermont’s first Activist Musician Accelerator — an incubator for Vermont-based musicians of all genres, connecting them with the resources, training and partnerships they need to develop effective community-based programs.
The show kicks off at 8 pm ET on YouTube and Facebook. No registration required, and the show is free so please consider donating to support Music to Life and BeUVT's amazing artists (click here to donate or tip in advance). BeUVT is made possible with support from ASCAP, Mascoma Bank, Winooski Strong, 105.9FM The Radiator and others. Special thanks to Darren Perron and his team at WCAX.
