Fort Worth African American Roots Music Festival
Join us in the Near Southside Cultural District for a day highlighting blackness in American roots music! The Fort Worth African American Roots Music Festival (FWAAMFest) is the only major-city festival of its kind, putting Fort Worth on the map as a place where community members can engage in the Black reclamation and innovation of these musical forms.
This year's lineup featured headliners Lizzie No and Jerron Paxton, as well as Corey Harris, Piedmont Acoustic Bluz Duo, Crys Matthews, Jontavious Willis, Joy Clark, Spice Cake Blues, Lilli Lewis, EJ Mathews, and Stephanie Anne Johnson.
FWAAMFest is a program of Decolonizing the Music Room, a Fort Worth nonprofit centering Black, Brown Indigenous, and Asian voices in music education and related fields.
