The Council of Americana Roots Music, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2010 with a mutual benefit of cultural enrichment and community service. Our mission is to promote, present, and preserve Americana roots music, while serving the under-served people of Appalachia with fairness, dignity, and compassion.

Programming includes production of a 16- episode annual public television series titled, Jammin at Hippie Jack’s (JAHJ).  This half-hour music television series is dedicated to the preservation and presentation of original singer songwriters of historically significant forms of Americana grassroots music. The series is currently distributed by the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) to public television stations, libraries, and educational institutions throughout the nation. Additional initiatives include a regional radio program, The Hippie Jack Radio Hour, broadcast on WDVX radio in Knoxville and the East Tennessee region and worldwide at www.wdvx.com; a public engagement music festival held in May, and a series of benefit concerts through out the year. All proceeds of which go to outreach for underserved people in former coal mining communities located in rural Overton County, Tennessee.
