Blues Society Leadership, we're again asking for your assistance in sharing information with both your membership and surrounding blues community regarding the Generation Blues youth scholarship program. Please help us pass along this important opportunity to young blues musicians in your area. Thank you in advance for all that you do to promote the blues and cultivate an active blues community in your region!

* Musicians must be under the age of 21 to apply for a Generation Blues Scholarship *


Visit the Blues Foundation’s website for more details about
Generation Blues by clicking here.

The deadline to submit a Generation Blues Application is March 31, 2020. Completed applications should be sent to Keisha Moore-Alston at keisha@blues.org
 
The Generation Blues scholarship fund was created to provide financial assistance to aspiring young blues musicians whose limited financial resources might prohibit them from attending a blues music learning opportunity. Since Generation Blues began, The Blues Foundation has awarded over 250 scholarships totaling more than $200,000 to our youth members as part of our mission to preserve blues heritage, celebrate blues recording and performance, expand worldwide awareness of the blues, and ensure the future of this uniquely American art form.

NEW BAND MEMBERSHIP
The Niek Velvis Blues Band is a collaboration among a plethora of Denver Musicians paying homage to the traditions of Delta, Chicago, and Folk-style Blues music. We reach into the back catalogues to play the familiar, and not-so-familiar, traditional songs steeped in the roots of the blues. Ranging from a Blues duo to a full-tilt Blues band, you’ll be able to find NVBB playing venues of all shapes and sizes across Colorado.
