Sustaining Roots Music (SOOTS) is a Raleigh Charter High School Community Project that raises funds for aging blues musicians to pay their bills, works to preserve the arts of the American South and assists the Music Maker Relief Foundation (MMRF) in their similar endeavors. 

SOOTS builds bridges between communities to help sustain the roots of today's music. 
We do this through our annual Blues Benefit Concert at Raleigh's LongView Center, May Day Cake Bake and Art Farm, as well as our annual free concert at UNC-Chapel Hill's Love House, which follows a roundtablediscussion with Southern Studies and Folklore professors. SOOTS archives and endows the work of local blues musicians in order to educate others to appreciate the richness of our vernacular culture.
