Newport Festivals Foundation and Nathanial Rateliff have partnered up to provide over $30K worth of music instruments to underserved music programs in Greeley, CO.

To celebrate the donation, Nathanial invited the students backstage for his sold out show at the Mission Ballroom. Nathanial took questions from the students about what it’s like to be a professional musician and how he got to where he is today.

This gift was made possible through NFF’s partnership with KEEN and direct support from Nathaniel RateliffTake Note ColoradoThe Marigold Project, the Bohemian Foundation, and you, our fans. Together, we are helping to grow the next generation of artists and music lovers.
