Nashville Heads to Mexico to Benefit the Children of the Little Yellow Schoolhouse
 

ISLA MUJERES, Q.R., Mexico (December 29, 2015)
– Country music hit-makers Jack Ingram and Craig Campbell will join
Kellie Pickler, Jerrod Niemann, Blackjack Billy, Love and Theft, LOCASH,
Kyle Jacobs, American Young, Nick Norman, Natalie Stovall, Lewis Brice,
Joal Rush, Hailey Steele, Rob Hatch, and Ryan Rickman for The Island
Time Music and Fishing Fest on February 15-20, 2016 in Isla Mujeres,
Mexico. The island paradise of Isla Mujeres will welcome an informal
delegation of Nashville musicians, singers, and songwriters all in an
effort to raise funds for the Little Yellow School House, which provides
services to the special needs children of Isla Mujeres at no charge.



“I’m honored to be a part of such a special event,” says Ingram. “I
am humbled that I can make a difference in these children’s lives
through music and look forward to playing with my Nashville friends in
the bars of Isla Mujeres, Mexico.”



The event’s six day schedule features a series of intimate, live
performances in local venues (including a luxurious private residence)
along with a fishing tournament that coincides with the winter migration
of sailfish to the local waters.



Proceeds from event tickets, the fishing tournament, an online
memorabilia auction, and sales of commemorative merchandise will fund
the operations of the Little Yellow School House, which Bundled tickets
for the event range from $199 to $249 per person and additional pricing
for select events is also available. All artists and staff volunteer
during this annual event allowing for every penny raised to benefit the
children at Little Yellow School House. Complete information on the
Island Time Music and Fishing Festival, along with a link to purchase
tickets, can be found at IslandTimeMusicFest.com. If you can’t make it to Mexico, you can still help by donating via the festival’s Facebook GoFundMe page: https://www.facebook.com/islandtimemusicfest/



About The Little Yellow School House
The Little Yellow School House in Isla Mujeres began with one room,
six students and a really big dream. Thanks to generous donors, and
years of support from the Island Time Music and Fishing Festival, the
school now has six classrooms, full-time teachers and over 50 students.
The school has achieved a 70% success rate of returning local special
needs children to traditional school environments. The school seeks
funding to provide enrollment for the 15 students on the island of Isla
Mujeres who currently cannot attend the school due to a lack of funds.
