Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time, ultimately leading to respiratory failure for someone diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. This complex disease affects over 70,000 people worldwide, with approximately 1,000 new cases being diagnosed every year. Though there has been significant progress in treating the disease, there is still no cure.
The Granada Theater is proud to team up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for its 11th annual show to not only raise awareness about the disease, but to also raise money to help fund research, drug development, promote individualized treatment, and ensure access to high-quality care to people fighting this devastating disease. Through the annual Cystic Fibrosis Concert Series, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and supporting businesses are able to create an event that brings together musicians, music lovers, and local businesses to form a community of people to take the battle against Cystic Fibrosis to the frontlines. A fun night with great music, benefitting an awesome cause? Sign us up, ASAP! We could not be more excited to team up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to bring this special concert series back to The Granada Theater on November 11th.
This extraordinary night will feature a unique song-swapping experience between four amazing artists. Special guests The O’s will kick off the night, following with an acoustic songwriter circle with the lead singer of the alternative-country band The Old 97’s, Rhett Miller, indie-rocker Ben Kweller, country singer Jack Ingram, and Dallas rocker Jonathan Tyler. Each musician will “swap” their most beloved songs back-to-back and share the stories and inspirations behind them.
Although VIP tickets are sold out, GA tickets are still available for purchase. Tickets can be purchased at www.granadatheater.com. Additional information on the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and their annual Concert series can be found at www.cff.org.
