Upcoming Blues Society Events


Please Help Save Independent Music Venues!

As you doubtless understand, many music venues are struggling to survive during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Congress has provided financial support for many individuals and organizations during this time.

The Minnesota Blues Society encourages you to ask Congress to provide support to save independent music venues and thereby the future of local live music around our country. You can do so through the National Independent Venue Association at the "Save Our Stages" link below.

Thank you for supporting the Blues and all live music!

2020 MN Blues Hall of Fame Postponed

The Board of Directors of the Minnesota Blues Society has decided to postpone the 2020 Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame Ceremony until 2021. We have had a lot of discussion about how we could have a small event or a video presentation of the Hall of Fame Awards. The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Banquet is the premier event staged by the Minnesota Blues Society each year. The Board of Directors decided that we don't want to hold an event that would slight our award winners in any way.

Our decision was made with consideration of the amount of planning and preparation that is required to stage the Hall of Fame. The continuing uncertainty that we face with the effects of Covid-19 makes this much more difficult.

Please understand that this is a difficult decision because we have many exceptional musicians and members of our music community who deserve to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
