The World of Music, both fans and musicians, are mourning the loss of Rock legend Tom Petty. News of his death came suddenly on Monday and it shocked a world already distraught from the news coming out of Las Vegas about the deadliest mass shooting attack in U.S. history. For many people, the news of Tom Petty‘s passing was too much to take in a day already clouded in darkness.
At a concert last night in Seattle, Dave Matthews‘ hometown, a group of musicians covered Tom Petty’s ‘Refugee’ in tribute to the legendary musician from Gainesville, Florida. Taking turns singing the verses were Dave Matthews, Country Music legend Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, and Patty Griffin. This was part of the Lampedusa Tour, a tour headlined by Dave Matthews to raise money for the Jesuit Refugee Service.
