Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Although Hambone Music Festival partners with Rochesterfest as a kick-off event, our target population is all people residing in southeast Minnesota. We offer very high quality professional blues and American roots music to the public at an affordable cost, and by offering partnership discounts with Channel One food shelf donations, Mayo employee and student discounts.We will measure the number of people who attend both the festival and workshops, compare participation numbers, ticket sales and awareness over last year. We will survey via email and utilize printed surveys to gather demographic data. We also solicit feedback via social networking and plan to add an online feedback page to our website.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal was to offer a variety of high quality music and educational opportunities to a diverse audience in order to provide increased awareness and understanding of roots/blues/American music styles and the cultural impact of this music in our society.
