For the first time in its 30 year history, GrassRoots has postponed an entire year of festivals due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to sustain the organization through the winter and prepare for the 2021 season, GrassRoots has launched the “Save Your Roots” campaign. With a capital campaign goal of $100,000, “Save Your Roots” will culminate in the very special Save Your Roots Live! webcast from the site of its first event in 1991.

Live performances will include the GrassRoots All-StarsJeb & TaraDriftwood, Richie & RosieJim LauderdalePreston & Keith FrankKeith SecolaDirk PowellCortaditoFabi World Music, and many more.
