Event Details

A Presentation from the Appalachian/Slavic Folk Alliance Weaving Solidarity through Music.

Come help send off Benya Stewart and Brother Hill before they return to Ukraine to deliver humanitarian aid. Stewart and Hill are founding members of Slavalachia, an international performing arts group blending and celebrating the folk traditions of Ukraine, Belarus, and Appalachia since 2019. Other band members are Ukrainians, living and volunteering in Western Ukraine, and a Belarusian, now based in Minneapolis.

Since February 24th, Stewart and Hill have raised over $60,000 across Ohio via their campaign "From Ohio With Love." Their mission is to enable Ohioans to have a direct positive impact on the war in Ukraine by helping more Ukrainian men and women survive their combat injuries.
