Sister Cities

Kristin Neville, founder and director, is part of a musical family from New Orleans and launched the organization in 2014 in Western MA, where she lives with her husband Charles. As Blues to Green moves forward, it is the organization’s wish to honor the rich heritage of jazz and roots music, with a strong connection to New Orleans musical culture. Through music and related arts, they seek to create educational and artistic opportunities for underserved youth, develop a connection between programs in New Orleans and the Greater Springfield area, and continue to present musical events that can uplift, inspire, educate and heal our communities and world.
