Next week in Nashville will be a doozy for Music City, U.S.A.
First, there's NRDC mega Music Saves Mountains concert to help build national momentum to end mountaintop removal coal mining. The following night -- May 20th -- NRDC also will be presenting Movies Save Mountains -- an evening of film, music, and discussion about the fight to end mountaintop removal.
Join us at Nashville's historic Belcourt Theater for two powerful, acclaimed new documentaries that bring us into the lives of coal country residents grappling with the effects of mountaintop removal coal mining. In addition, enjoy a performance from musical guest Kathy Mattea, a panel discussion with filmmakers and coal country activists moderated by acclaimed author Silas House, and a surprise appearance by a special guest.
This is a free event, with donations being collected for flood relief and to benefit our grassroots allies, the Alliance for Appalachia. For details on the event and to reserve your FREE tickets at: http://savemountains.eventbrite.com
We hope to see you at the movies!
