Last year's festival was an amazing experience! We had so many people on stage for the encore, we were shaking the Green Mountains!
Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have risen like a phoenix out of the ashes of war and enflamed the passions of fans across the globe with their uplifting songs of hope, faith and joy. The band is a potent example of the redeeming power of music and the ability of the human spirit to persevere through unimaginable hardship and emerge with optimism intact. From their humble beginnings in West African refugee camps, Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars have performed on some of the world’s most prestigious stages including the Apollo Theatre, Central Park, and Bonnaroo. SLRAS have matured into one of Africa’s top touring and recording bands. They also now play an important diplomatic role as spokespersons and for the ever-increasing millions of refugees worldwide.
“A world-music stew of traditional West African melody, reggae and rhythmic folk.”
–The New York Times
