Our Mission

The Roots N Blues Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, positively impacts the lives of children by celebrating the rich cultural heritage of American music through local educational programs.


The Program

The Roots N Blues 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.
