Hambone Music Festival’s Board of Directors and it’s supporters would like to thank Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC), and the Rochester Arts Council for their ongoing arts grant support for this worthwhile festival.
Hambone Music Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. OUR MISSION: To provide an affordable entertainment event while educating the general public about the art form of blues and roots-related music by performance, enhancing appreciation and understanding, by interpreting and preserving blues/roots related music. Secondary purpose is to donate funds received, over and above operating costs to Rochester area youth music programs and local charities to be named.
(Currently partnered with VonWald Youth Group Home which has received new musical instruments for residents’ use from HMF, as well as mentorship and artists in residence opportunities from HMF board members and volunteers.)
