We hope you will consider supporting the Boise Blues Society to help with out scholarship opportunities for young blues musicians.
This year, 3 scholarships were awarded for a total of $1500. A number of these scholarships have been awarded in past years to appreciative young men and women in Boise area middle and high schools.
Additionally, free “Blues In The Schools” programs on the history of the blues, with live musical performances, are offered each year to elementary, middle and high schools by members of BBS. Your membership helps promote a continued appreciation of the blues and encourages our young people to develop interests in music in general.
And finally, your membership dues help us bring high quality blues musicians into Boise for amazing shows. Please consider joining us in our promotion of blues music in Boise. Members receive discounted tickets to BBS sponsored shows. Annual memberships run from January 1 to December 31 each year with fees of only $15 for an individual and $20 for families. Join online with your smartphone, tablet or computer by selecting “Join Us”at:
We also want volunteers to help at our shows. If you’re interested, email us and let us know. You DO NOT have to be a BBS member to volunteer, just a person who loves blues music and likes to have fun.
