Our story so far

Love for music is what brought us together in The Roots Unlimited Foundation. That common interest shaped the professed aim of our Foundation to promote roots & Americana music in the Maastricht area. We want to venture across strict musical barriers, because music in its self has a defining influence on a wide range of cultural fields, like art, literature, dance, religion, movie, photography etc. This cross-cultural characteristic is a main point focus in the activities of the Foundation.

January 2018 saw the birth of the Foundation with Guido van den Boorn as its first chairman. In  springtime we organised our first four concerts in the Gelagkamer (Bosschstraat, Maastricht). Ian Matthews, a long time resident of Limburg and – yes – frontman of the famous Matthew’s Southern Comfort, marked the start of the series. The fall of 2018 saw various international roots artists performing in Maastricht, i.e. Karen Lovely & Ben Rice and Melissa James with  Tom Gamble.

Roots Unlimited will continue to book (inter)national stars, as well as local & regional talents (see our News column for recent updates). The venues we select will be special and sometimes unexpected. Check our website and Facebook for updates and news items.
