Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars Outdoor Concert
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars bring their inspiring story and irresistible music to a festive outdoor concert under the stars at the Osher Marin JCC. The group met and started playing music together in West African refugee camps after fleeing Sierra Leone's capital Freetown during the nation's decade-long civil war. Their sound is a unique fusion of traditional African music and roots reggae, inflected with New Orleans style. Their story was told in the hit documentary Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars
, which was produced with support from Keith Richards, Paul McCartney and Angelina Jolie. Since their incredible journey, they've released three of the most acclaimed world music albums of the last decade, have recorded and performed live with Aerosmith, and played at Bonnaroo, the Kennedy Center, the Montreal Jazz Festival, Summerstage in New York's Central Park and other top gigs.

The definitive '70s progressive rock band Yes performs two of their greatest albums in one night, followed by an encore of hits. 1971's Fragile broke the band in the U.S., while Close to the Edge is one of the finest prog-rock records ever recorded. With a dozen gold or platinum albums, a Grammy Award and seven Grammy nominations, the band has been together for 45 years, most recently releasing Heaven and Earth this summer. Songs like "Roundabout," "I've Seen All Good People," "Long Distance Runaround" and the chart-topping "Owner of a Lonely Heart" are still hits on classic rock radio.
