Roots N Blues Foundation

What We Do

We bring professional working musicians into local schools so that young people can benefit from the joy that live music provides, as well as develop an appreciation for the historic impact that American Roots Music has had upon our culture.

Why We're Great

Music is a powerful form of expression as well as an integral and beautiful thread of culture. Our programs facilitate an opportunity to learn about our history through music while celebrating the many cultures that comprise American roots music.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Educational studies consistently report that access to the arts, and particularly music instruction, improves students’ success rates on SAT, ACT, and MAP scores, increases graduation and college acceptance, and lowers behavioral issues.
