Phish Fans Fund Manchester Music

WMSMP imageThe all-volunteer, fan-run Mockingbird Foundation is once again celebrating Phish tour by making unsolicited Tour Grants supporting a music program near each of the venues at which the band will perform. This series of Tour Grants covers all of the U.S. locations Phish will play during the band's 2019 Summer Tour.

In honor of Phish's upcoming shows at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, June 14th and 16th, we are sending a check for $1500 to the Westwood Middle School's Music ProgramSix programs - beginning, intermediate, and advanced bands and choruses - will benefit from funds raised and donated by Phish fans, another instance of our music community helping bringing music to each community we touch.

This is Mockingbird's 8th grant in Tennessee, and our 403rd grant overall. The Foundation has now disbursed $144,500 in Tour Grants, 10% of its more than $1.4M in grants covering all 50 states. Watch for news posts here at, or the evolving press release at, for news on other "miracle" tour grants this summer. And please consider making a contribution, to help us give back to the communities we've touched.
