Education Initiative

In keeping with the vision and mission of St. Louis Blues Society, the education initiative focuses on the impact and contributions St. Louis artists and musicians have made to the St. Louis community over the years and the influence St. Louis style blues have made across the United States and abroad.

The Education Initiative goals:


  • Inspire new blues artists to emerge
  • Highlight blues talent that has been so instrumental to the success of the St. Louis blues
  • Tell the story of St. Louis blues legacy
  • Engage members and legendary blues artists to get involved
  • Increase awareness of St. Louis Blues Society achievements and ongoing efforts to preserve St. Louis blues history
  • Reach out to youth to help shape the future of the blues, St. Louis blues!
