Blues to Green

Blues to Green is the producing nonprofit organization for the Springfield Jazz and Roots Festival, For six years, we have presented world-class performances for free to residents of Springfield and the New England region, uniting the region’s diverse cultural communities through music, arts, education, and revelry.

We provide arts access via free concerts and educational programs celebrating the rich heritage of American music, especially by communities of color. Our programs simultaneously provide educational and artistic opportunities for underserved youth, raise awareness of social and environmental causes, draw thousands of people to bring economic stimulus and cultural revitalization to underprivileged downtown Springfield, and boost its nonprofits.

Our mission is to use music and the arts to celebrate and strengthen community and culture, foster social responsibility, and embrace environmental stewardship.
