Up From The Roots

A Fundraiser for the Ron Miles Scholarship

The Up From The Roots Series is a weekly series of concerts presented by Paul Riola and MSU Denver that celebrates Ron Miles and his relationship with the Front Range creative music community. Each week, a different set of musicians present a concert (full schedule below) at the Kalamath Building, 800 Kalamath in Denver. All proceeds benefit the Ron Miles Scholarship Fund at MSU Denver.

In lieu of tickets, we are asking for a donation to the Ron Miles Scholarship Fund. $10 is the suggested donation, but please feel free to donate more to this important fund. You may donate in advance and show your receipt at the door, or scan the QR code at the entrance to donate at the concert.
