American Bluegrass Band Visits Zambia

Lusaka— As part of the commitment of the Government of the United States to building bridges between the people of Zambia and the United States, the U.S. Embassy is hosting American Bluegrass band “Crow and The Canyon” in Zambia March 29-April 6, 2018.

The American music program with Crow and The Canyon also has a focus on environmental protection.  The environment is a particular interest of the band and of the U.S. Embassy.  We also selected this theme in recognition of Zambia’s natural beauty, unique wildlife, and abundant natural resources.

The band will hold free public concerts in Livingstone on March 30 at 17:00 at the Livingstone Institute of Business and Engineering Studies (LIBES) and at East Park Mall in Lusaka on April 4 at 14:00.

The musicians will hold masterclasses with musicians and managers about using music as a tool to promote messaging on the environment, and also hold workshops with youth activists and members of environmental clubs about environmental awareness.
