W&M honors a tradition dating back hundreds of years by bringing ?uestlove, Black Thought and the gang down to Williamsburg in February.

Philadelphia Hip Hop band The Roots have been announced to play at The College of William & Mary’s first annual Charter Day concert. The February 5 holiday marks the date when the Royal charter was signed to establish the respected Williamsburg, Virginia college.

The announcement was made this weekend, during W&M’s Yule Log ceremony, another college tradition.

Earlier this year, The Roots released their latest album, How I Got Over, and perform sporadically in between their Late Night houseband duties.
