ROOTS is the organic musical world of the “front porch” … it is blues and bluegrass, folk and more. The directors of FOLK ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL, the IBMA and the BLUES FOUNDATION describe their amazing world of roots music and how they help artists … it’s even something called “SongFarmers.” Students will visit the amazing community or independent artists, acoustic performers and songwriters. We call this the “front porch” world of musicians, art that is from the heart and not “chart” or commercial bound.
