Nashville music artist Aaron English will be performing a special fundraiser concert on Tuesday, July 27, at 7 p.m. at The World Theatre in Kearney, Nebraska. This singer-songwriter, pianist and world traveler will share his unique blend of American rock with the traditional music of Africa, Brazil, Celtic Europe and the Middle East.
Being a musician is just part of Aaron’s story. In 2015, while living in Africa, Aaron founded the International Youth Music Project (IYMP), a charity that supports youth music programs at orphanages, refugee camps and HIV+/AIDS community centers. After expenses, all ticket sale proceeds will be donated to the IYMP.
Over 2,500 instruments have been donated to children in need via the IYMP, giving disadvantaged youth opportunities for self-expression through music and much more. Bring a new or slightly used instrument to the concert and the IYMP will make sure it is directly sent to Kenya or Uganda, immediately benefiting a child who would otherwise go without in one of those countries.
Tickets for the event are $15 advance/$20 day of show and include appetizers inspired by the cuisines of East African nations and a personal meet and greet with the artist. Catering provided and donated by chef Michael Park of Kearney.
