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 If you can't make it to Mexico, you can still help by donating via the festival's Facebook GoFundMe page:

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.
