The Roots N Blues Foundation has brought joy and music education to thousands of children by providing access to Blues in the Schools programs.
Starting in 2007 with just one elementary school, BITS has expanded to every elementary school in Columbia. BITS incorporates visual arts, history, literature and social studies into a celebration of music and culture. Students interact, learn and even write and perform with living music legends like Booker T.
We invite you to be a part of this gift to our community.
At the end of your festival experience, stop at one of the RFID top-up stations or the Festival box office, or look for Roots N Blues Foundation volunteers at the exit gate–let them know you would like to donate the unused funds remaining on your wristband to our nonprofit.
