Sometimes, we rise to the occasion. Other times, the occasion rises to us. Both could be said about Dispatch, one of the country's most successful independent bands, and their forthcoming album, America, Location 12. Built on tales of struggling immigrants, forgotten veterans, and children cast aside, Dispatch (Brad Corrigan, Chad Stokes, and Pete Francis) has crafted a set of songs that tap into the peace and plight of the human condition, chiseling a spot in our culture that has perhaps never been quite so vital. 
Their sixth full-length LP, America, Location 12, marks a return to form and a path to the future for the trio whose music has always made us take stock of our place in the world and forced us to remember that the first pillar of social responsibility is to be kind and decent to one another. And, beneath it all, to find moments of joy and inspiration that sometimes only music can provide.

Nahko and Medicine for the People call themselves a “world music musical collective.” Hailing from Portland, OR, frontman Nahko Bear, a musician of Puerto Rican, Apache, and Filipino descent, leads the group to create a fusion of multiple cultural musical influences. Nahko and the Medicine People played at Britt during the 2016 season.

Scatter Their Own will open this concert.
