A Celebration of the life and music of Joe Strummer for the Joe Strummer Foundation
Join us for a celebration of the life and music of Joe Strummer - musician and philanthropist. Strummer is best known for fronting one of the most influential punk bands, The Clash, and later fronting his world music band The Mescalaros. He was a supporter of many social causes especially music education, and started the Joe Strummer Foundation to provide instruments and music lessons to children around the world.
Events will be held globally this August to celebrate his music and help raise funds for the foundation. The mission is to provide opportunities to musicians and support to projects that create empowerment through music. Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Joe Strummer Foundation. www.joestrummerfoundation.org
Global concerts are scheduled in the U.K. and the U.S.- New York, Florida, and even one in Lima, Peru. This is the first Detroit StrummerJam and it will become an annual event.
