BEND, OR, USA, Sept. 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bend Roots Revival, a free community music festival in Bend, Oregon, celebrates the unique and creative spirit of Bend. Bend Roots is a project of KPOV High Desert Community Radio and Fuzz Phonic Records – Developing the Performing Arts in Bend. Proceeds from event sponsorship, donations, merchandise and beer sales support arts and music education projects, through camps and workshops, and at six schools in central Oregon.
We invite music lovers from across the region to join us in Bend September 23-25, 2022. Bend Roots Revival is offering over 100 fully in-person shows and educational workshops for the first time since 2019. At the height of the pandemic, Bend Roots streamed nearly the entire festival live to encourage social distancing. In 2022, we’ll come together at The Box Factory across nine stages to showcase all the different genres and artists that call Bend home. As well as a central location, we have some exciting new additions to the festival.

“Imagine a tree with its leaves and buds reaching out towards the sun and its roots reaching deep,” says Mark Ransom, founder of Bend Roots. “Bend Roots Revival brings the fruits of this enrichment project to our community each year at harvest time in late September. We feature children’s groups, school groups, family projects, and beginners cutting their teeth alongside seasoned professionals from our community and beyond.
Bend Roots Revival is one of Bend’s biggest parties of the year, born out of the intention to inspire the imagination and nourish the soul of our community. At the same time, and throughout the year, we bring artist-teachers from the community (many of whom will be performing on stage at Revival) to local schools to mentor music and theater students. We provide scholarships to students of local private instructors and help local teacher-artists find part-time work.
The Bend Roots Teaching Collective partners with others like Worthy Brewing, the High Desert Music Collective and 501c3’s KPOV and Fuzz Phonic Records to provide ukulele, guitar and drum lessons, music workshops and interactive events .
