Thanks to our friends at Lightning 100 and The Funky Umbrella for the following videos from this past Sunday night, May 15, 2011 at Lightning 100's Nashville Sunday Night show, where we played with Burlap To Cashmere.
Blood: Water Mission - the organization that began as the vision of Jars of Clay’s Dan Haseltine to impact Africa with safe water—had reason to celebrate (May 10) in Nashville. The concert staging of the “Well:Done Celebration” was held in honor of the successful completion of the ‘1000 Wells Project’ now producing water in communities all over Africa through the work of Blood:Water Mission. The event held at the historic Ryman Auditorium raised over $100,000.
