“Roots” Project

Community Jam Session at Rural Arts & Culture Summit

The Americana-Roots Music Project falls at the intersection of Mark Kreitzer’s music and education careers, allowing him to share his extensive background in and love of Americana-roots music.

Through performance, classes, workshops, and community jams, Mark takes his music out of the standard music venues and into schools, community centers, and other locations, reaching and impacting many people who otherwise might not have access to it. Community members are active participants in the programs, from designing the program to participating in workshops, jams, and performances. Theses programs promote community and an understanding of the roots of folk instruments, Americana music, and of us, as a people.
