American Roots Live Mission Statement:

American Roots Live is a movement whose purpose is to promote and preserve the heartbeat of culture - American roots music - Jazz, Blues, Country, Rock & Roll, Folk, R&B, Rock, Soul, Gospel, Zydeco, Cajun, Native American, BeBop, Pre and Post War Pop - and all rhymes and rhythms in between that have tapped the root.

This music - of a time period running roughly from the late 19th century through the late 1970's, of the 20th century - makes up the genre our movement recognizes as American roots music. It is also our purpose to promote a revival of a "live music scene". One that's open to all who want to play or listen and be part of the energy in the room.

We are dedicated to encouraging and inspiring children and young adults to appreciate American roots music as the birthplace of today's music by getting involved and be part of the energy - listen or play on stage with a professional musician.

The impetus of our effort is significant as American roots music is no longer mainstream. It resides in ever narrowing niche away from mainstream audiences.

As exampled by music venues originally opening as "live music" rooms, blues, country or roots, now forced to find other forms of entertainment to pay their bills or close their doors.

Disturbingly, this is our reality.

It is therefore ARL mission to promote and preserve the music through live performance, television, radio, print media, recorded media, internet, pod-cast, etc. so children will pass it on to their children and so forth...

We need your interest and support - musician and fan alike. Keep the music alive.
