Three Charleston-based singer/songwriters have teamed up with an Atlanta-based songstress for a fundraising tour across the Southeast this month. Tyler Mechem (of Crowfield), Luke Cunningham (ex-Part-Time Heroes), Ryan Bonner (of the Dearly Beloved), and Atlanta resident Emily Lynch embark on a two-week trip dubbed the How the Other Half Gives Tour. Their goal is to raise awareness about volunteering and worthy causes at each location and to provide an opportunity for others to learn more about charitable groups operating in their own backyards. The tour starts in Charleston on Wed. Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. at the Circular Congregational Church, and it winds through the Carolinas to Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Local songwriter Campbell Brown (of Gaslight Street) will be sitting in for Lynch at this show. At each location, the songwriters personally volunteer at selected shelters, outreach programs, and local nonprofits. They’ll donate all proceeds from that night’s show to that nonprofit as well.
