Boise Blues Kids

We’re so very proud to say that 5 young musicians, all of them former Boise Blues Society Music Scholarship Winners – are putting on a special show at Ironwood Social, 5467 North Glenwood Street on Saturday, February 17th.
They’re paying it forward by raising funds for future Scholarships and for our Blues In the Schools program.

Don’t miss hearing these talented young musicians:
Zack Quintana; Thomas Wilson; Noble Holt; Kevin Littrell; Casey Shelden and friends are performing live. It’s a fun-raiser!
Special thanks to Steve Hall of “the Blues Groove” for being uh, instrumental, in arranging this great event.

Tickets are only $8 and are available at

We hope you’ll come out and support these incredibly talented young men and contribute to our efforts to see that young musicians like these will keep the blues alive for future generations.
