A locally based non-profit organization that aims to facilitate learning in diverse communities by providing “customized” arts programs, workshops, residencies and performances through use of traditional American music, Roots of American Music (ROAM)
provides arts programming to the community using traditional American music as a way to connect students to the past.
Specifically, the organization aims to “promote and preserve traditional American music — old-time country, folk, gospel, blues, and early rock — to enhance educational outcomes and enrich people's lives.”
Now, ROAM has just announced that singer-guitarist Terry Lee Goffee
, an Ohio native who plays throughout the region, will present his Johnny Cash tribute at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21, at Beachland Ballroom
as part of a special benefit concert. Proceeds will benefit Roots of American Music’s education and outreach programs.
General admission tickets are $25, and VIP tickets, which include a pre-concert dinner, are $135. Individual and corporate sponsorships starting at $500 are also available.
