The Newport Folk Festival Foundation has made a donation on behalf of Lucy Dacus to support JAMinc’s school outreach efforts.

“JAMinc is beyond grateful to Richmond’s own Lucy Dacus for tapping us as her musical non profit-of-choice,” said JAMinc’s President, Tim Timberlake.

“It’s so important for us to provide opportunities for young people to hear music performed live, never knowing how one single moment might trigger the lifetime joy that only music can provide.”

Since 2004 JAMinc has taken studio concert artists to public schools with more than 90,000 students served so far. This donation will be used to underwrite the instructor fees JAMinc provides each artist.

Lucy Dacus, one of Richmond’s best known singer/songwriters of late, will be performing at the Newport Folk Festival on July 27, 2019.
