Free showing of Concert for George at UNCA Friday night

Billed as part of a meditation on working toward new possibilities, EarthSyncHub.com will host a free screening of the landmark Concert for George at UNCA’s Owen Conference Center tonight. The film will be shown at 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 20.

The 2002 concert features Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and a 16-piece orchestra of Indian musicians, along with Ravi Shankar’s daughter Anoushka. The concert highlights the sense of possibility America needs now, according to its organizers.
