Support Your Roots, Our 6th Annual Fall Fundraiser

It’s been another incredible year for students at The Roots of Music. This year’s performances took us from New Orleans to Curaçao, to Harvest Festival in Canada and back. Now at our new home, our own building in the Marigny, we know nothing we do would be possible without our incredible community of supporters. We invite you to join us November 10, 2018 at the New Orleans Jazz Market in celebration and support of another year of Roots programming. We are excited to have Ani DiFranco hosting this very special night, featuring New Orleans food, cocktails, and live entertainment from The Roots of Music Marching Band, Corey Henry & The Treme Funktet, and other special guests. Please join us! Visit our event page for more info.
