Juneteenth commemorates the day the last enslaved people in the U.S. were granted freedom in 1865, more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. What’s the relevance of a celebration of Black liberation for the largely White jam band community? Why should we keep Juneteenth in mind as many of us plan to head back out on tour for the first time in more than a year?

Mockingbird Sessions Announced!!

The all-volunteer Mockingbird Foundation is proud to commemorate 25 years of providing music education to America’s young people by presenting The Mockingbird Sessions, a three-day celebration of music, education, and community.  This free event - livestreaming on Fans.live June 4, 5, and 6 - will bring together a diverse group of musicians, educators, and foundations to promote music education throughout America.

Thanks to the efforts of dozens of people and multiple studios across the U.S., Mockingbird Sessions includes artists such as Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, and Christian McBride in a once-in-a-lifetime quartet with harpist Mikalea Davis; The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio; The Yonder Mountain String Trio; Paul Hoffman (from Greensky Bluegrass); and many others in unique pairings and groups that were curated specifically for this event.

Masterclasses will also be presented, showcasing the artistic philosophies of various artists and instruments, like the bass panel featuring Reed Mathis, Karina Rykman, and Chris Wood and hosted by Dr. Stephanie Jenkins (noted host of the Phish Studies Conference in 2019).  Testimonials by grantees will be sporadically shared during the weekend as well, and a limited edition print from artist Cory Rowe will be available for purchase.

And we're hoping other Phish fans, especially our community here at Phish.net, can help spread the word on social. We're using the hashtag #mbird25, of course, and we've created two URL shortcuts: mbird.org/mbird25 is an evolving splash page for attendees, and mbird.org/25 goes to a conventional press release for journalists. (Please send it to a couple; you might be surprised when they get back to you!)

4,000 Donors To Mockingbird!

A few weeks ago, we announced an approaching milestone, and promised a Mockingbird t-shirt and sticker to the 4,000th unique donor to the Mockingbird Foundation. That milestone's been passed, and we'd like to thank user @wharfrat1, to whom we'll be sending those thank yous this week.

This is a year full of milestones for Mockingbird. The 10,000th donation came on January 1st, and disbursements will surprass 500 grants and $2M total distributed sometime this summer. We appreciate everyone's ongoing support for music education. Grants for the 26th competitive round will be announced this June.
