Blues in the Schools

What we do:

The Roots N Blues Foundation brings the Blues in the Schools program to schools and youth facilities. Students have the opportunity to watch and perform with award-winning guest musicians. They learn about blues history, traditions, and diversity.

Why we’re great:

Blues in the Schools provides students with a positive, creative outlet through music that also supports their communication skills, pride in heritage, compassion, and character. We integrate the arts across the curriculum, using blues as the vehicle!

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We bring the arts to kids in an integrated way and all of our programs are provided at no charge to participating schools! The amount of money we raise annually directly impacts the number of students we can serve.
