Legendary American country/folk singer and songwriter, John Prine, will make a special guest appearance at The RISE Foundation’s benefit concert in Vicar Street on Sunday 20th May. The concert, organised by RISE Foundation founder, Frances Black, is part of the foundation’s awareness building and fundraising activities for ‘RISE Week 2012’. All the money raised through the RISE Benefit Concert will go directly towards supporting families with loved ones in addiction.

John will be joined on the night by an esteemed group of artists including Frances Black, Brian Kennedy, Altan, Paddy Casey, Fiona Prine, Aoife Scott and Roisin O.

The RISE Foundation is a registered charity founded in 2009 by Frances, who was inspired after going back to college and becoming an addiction therapist. Frances wanted to set up an organisation that focused on the families of those in addiction (alcohol, drugs, gambling, food or sex addiction etc.) The overall aim of the organisation is for cultural change around addiction in Ireland.

The RISE Foundation currently runs both 10-week non-residential and 5-day residential Family Programmes with a team of experienced addiction counsellors. These services are available to people from all communities throughout the island of Ireland.
