STLBS STATEMENT ABOUT GATHERING IN 2020
The St. Louis Blues Society is dedicated to preservation and perpetuation of St. Louis Blues Music and the people who create it. During the era of Covid, the STLBS has made a conscious choice to protect musicians and industry professionals by postponing programs and events that gather people together through the end of 2020.
This choice will directly affect our annual compilation CD, Atomic Blues Festival and the International Blues Challenge.
This is a very difficult decision for the organization, but the safety and health of our musicians and those that provide support to them is of the utmost importance to the future of music in St. Louis.
The St. Louis Blues Society will continue to raise and distribute money to out-of-work St. Louis Blues Musicians as well as support local venues and musicians who are providing safe spaces to enjoy music and community.
Thank you all for your support and understanding. We all look forward to a time where we can gather, support and enjoy St. Louis Blues Music!
