Southern Music Rising Festival

The Foundation for the Preservation of Historic American Music is a non-profit, volunteer organization established to promote the preservation, appreciation, and performance of historical American music. 

The Foundation, utilizing its operating arm, Southern Music Rising, organizes, promotes and holds major musical events in Monticello, Florida.  The Spring music celebration sponsored by Southern Music Rising brings numerous world famous musicians to Monticello.  Thousands of people come to enjoy this wonderful annual event which serves to enhance our community and stimulate our local economy. 

Music is a profound communicator that transcends generations.
It is a storehouse of a people's history and a major means of transferring our culture from one generation to the next. 

Our Foundation's hope is to aid this process.
