Event Description

Free on the New Haven Green

The Wailers Band put reggae on the map. They brought reggae to the attention of the world outside of Jamaica, elevating Bob Marley to superstardom, and in the process, bringing the music of their home to audiences on every continent. Now steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, old-school members welcome the new-generation talent of drummer Aston Barrett Jr. —“Fam’s” son and nephew of Wailers co-founder Carlton “Carly” Barrett—and bring their timeless, distinctive music, and intricate arrangements and lyrics to fans everywhere.


The quintessential live band, Rusted Root has honed the perfect combination of musical intuition, freedom, and virtuosity for two decades, shaping their sound into their own vision of roots music and world rock. The powerhouse ensemble’s sweat-inducing and hypnotic live performances have brought them on tour alongside everyone from Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page’s reunion tour, and now The Wailers. Rusted Root transcends age, generations, and cultures.

Putting Faith in a Local—and Ingenious—Solution for Affordable Housing

LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.

The Good Word on How Faith-based Groups Are Turning Land into Homes

An in depth feature on Curbed.com details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”

We Got Next: Playing Hoops and Transforming Lives

This weekend’s NBA All-Star Game is a reminder of the transformational power of basketball, and the many ways that LISC promotes a game that can spark opportunity and help heal communities all across the country.
