George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic Play for Clean Water
Asheville, NC – The Waggoner Team with Movement Mortgage, Matt and Molly team of Keller Williams and 98.1 The River present George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. MountainTrue’s French Broad Riverkeeper works with the Yoto River Waterkeeper in Togo to provide safe, potable water, and proceeds from the show will fund a drinking water well in rural west Africa.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist and legendary funk act, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic will light up the Salvage Station on Friday May 11, to raise money for drinking water wells in Togo, West Africa. George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. Decades of hits followed and Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic continue to wow crowds with some of the best live shows around.
The French Broad Riverkeepers works in partnership with the Yoto River Waterkeeper to construct drinking water wells along the Yoto River, in rural Togo. This is an area where most people lack access to clean drinking water and additional clean drinking water sources are desperately needed. This partnership has already created three wells that now provide clean drinking water to hundreds of Togolese.
