Music is the voice of the soul
February 15th through 20th several Nashville musicians are heading to the islands! They are traveling to Isla Mujeres, Mexico for 6 days of music, fishing, and fundraising for the Little Yellow School House.
The Nashville music community has opened it's hearts to the children of Isla Mujeres for the past seven years. Combining good times and goodwill, the Island Time Music and Fishing Festival has given music lovers and fishing enthusiasts the opportunity to interact with talented writers and performers in the Caribbean island community of Isla Mujeres. Attendees of this event enjoy intimate performances daily in multiple venues across the island and have unparalled access to the artists.
This is a great opportunity to get to know the artists and hear the story behind many of their hit songs! Fisherman will take to the neighboring waters for top honors in a fishing tournament. Isla Mujeres is a fisherman and fun lover’s dream. Each winter the sailfish arrive to the beautiful clear waters of this island paradise. The Island Time Music Festival hosts one of the best Fishing Tournaments that Isla sees all year! It is the perfect tournament to show your angling skills and enjoy world class entertainment all while helping a great cause. All the proceeds from the week's activities and the online auction benefit the operations of the islands Little Yellow Schoolhouse which serves local special needs children.
Renowned musicians join in supporting the cause bringing some of the best entertainment in the world to Isla Majures. This year finds the following artists making their way to the island:
Kellie Pickler, Kyle Jacobs, Love & Theft, Jerrod Niemann, Blackjack Billy, American Young, Nick Norman, Lewis Brice, Joal Rush, Rob Hatch, Lance Miller, Hailey Steele, Craig Campbell, LOCASH, Natalie Stovall, Tylor Bailey, Amara GiveLove, Ryan Rickman & Jack Ingram.
The Little Yellow School House began when it came to realization that there was a desperate need for a school for special needs children in Isla Mujeres. The festival helps raise money to benefit these children and put them in a school, free of charge, where they can learn and grow. The success of the Island Time Music Festival & Fishing Tournament, allows the school to now have six classrooms, full time teachers and over 50 students.
These artists not only make music that matters, they are making music matter. Click on the link for more information on how you can donate. It's not to early to start making plans to attend next years Isla Mujeres Music Festival!!
