The Roots N Blues N BBQ Foundation has brought joy and music education to thousands of children by providing the Blues in the Schools program. Students have the opportunity to write and perform with award-winning guest musicians and internationally recognized music educators in their classrooms. Programs range from assembly only to a week-long residence. Students learn about the blues and American blues history, traditions, diversity, culture, and influential blues legends through hands on experience.
The Blues in the Schools program was established in 2007 as an outreach to the community and to give the gift of music to kids at Grant Elementary School. The Roots N Blues N BBQ Foundation has worked to expand Blues in the Schools and is currently providing the program to schools all over the Mid-Missouri area. Our goal is to expand the program across the state of Missouri.
