I had a great time shooting HousingFest in Charlotte a few weeks back. Some really great acts and a good cause.
HousingFest is a music festival dedicated to ending homelessness in Charlotte. It’s guided by two simple principles: 1) Housing is a basic human right and 2) music has the power to unite people to end homelessness. All proceeds from the show go towards expanding Urban Ministry Center’s (UMC) HousingWorks program that provides homes for men and women who don’t have one yet. This years HousingFest was held on Saturday May 28th, 2016 at The Fillmore at NC Music Factory. The lineup featured Josh Ritter, Nikki Hill, Matrimony, Jim Lauderdale, Lindi Ortega, and Justin Fedor. There are plenty of opportunities for people to learn about the cause of ending homelessness and the work that’s being done to do so here in Charlotte.
