Presenting music events and programs to bring people together, uplift, inspire, and educate.
Blues to Green has a mission to use music to celebrate community and culture, build shared purpose, and catalyze social and environmental change.


For six years, Blues to Green has produced the Springfield Jazz & Roots Festival, a full day of music offered free to the public. The organization has collaborated with business, civic and community leaders in the greater Springfield area, as well as other nonprofits to organize a successful event.

Support from the community will help us to broaden the reach, impact and artistic offerings of the Springfield Jazz & Roots Festival. In addition, we are striving to develop year-round music related programming, with a focus on Western MA/ Greater Springfield area youth, including: workshops in music improvisation and the roots of jazz and American popular music; and providing greater access to musical instruments, instruction, and creative exploration and discovery.

We are also seeking partners to present public music, arts and educational events that will explore climate change and efforts to build sustainable, equitable, and resilient communities. A particular focus will be on the New Orleans/ Gulf Coast region, with the series spotlighting the region’s music and culture.

We hope that you will support Blues to Green in growing this vision to use music to bring people together, help to transform communities, and present new educational and artistic opportunities for youth.
