Back To Top of Content

The Minnesota Blues Society is looking for motivated volunteers to help with our ongoing operations. We could use some help in the following areas:

BLUES FOR KIDS PROGRAM COORDINATOR — The position involves contacting and informing public libraries, community education programs, county fairs, schools, etc. about the educational programs that we offer (mostly introductory harmonica instruction.) Scheduling events, lining up instructors and ordering harmonicas would also be part of this position. Some organizational and people skills would be an asset for this position. This program is already in place, so we are not expecting a new person to have to come in and re-invent the program. We just need someone to do the job.

QUICKBOOKS ACCOUNTING DATA ENTRY — We are looking for a volunteer familiar with the Quickbooks software program willing to assist the Treasurer in tracking the Society's finances. We need to have our information in a format more conducive to generating reports that are acceptable to foundations offering grant money for our ongoing programs and to help MnBS to grow.

MEMBERSHIP SERVICES — We are interested in finding a volunteer to take over processing memberships. The position involves maintaining the member database, issuing new and renewal membership cards along with thank you letters. This position will also involve generating renewal notices. Some computer and word processing skills are required. Anyone interested in this position will be fully trained before they are expected to take over the job.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact:

And The Winner Is …

Curtis Marlatt

Louisville "White Lightning" Curtis

The judges' selection for the 2015 Road To Memphis Solo/Duo Challenge winner is Louisville "White Lightning" Curtis (Marlatt). First runners-up are Brother Sun Sister Moon and second runners-up are Mark Cameron & Bill Keyes.

It was a suprisingly good turn out on an exceptionally nice afternoon at The Lodge in Robbinsdale. Many thanks to The Lodge staff, Vig Guitars, the volunteers, judges, audience members and all of the other participating acts for making this a successful event once again this year. A more complete review of the event and more photos will be posted in the near future at www.mnbs.org. — Jake Jacobson
