The Home Tour, a nonprofit organization that brings local and nationally recognized musicians together to perform for residents in communities that do not have access to live music, will be performing across Detroit until Sept. 18.
“We are inspired by Detroit’s resilience and deep historical musical roots,” says Mary McBride, founder of The Home Tour. “For a city that has proven it can overcome adversity, the Home Tour aims to aid in the restoration of its communities by delivering high-energy, high-impact performances for, and with, Detroit residents in need.”
