About Us

We are a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization of blues music supporters celebrating 25 years in Boise, Idaho. (1992-2017)

We have a strong commitment to using the power of music to inspire and educate local youth. We bring musicians into schools to introduce blues music and engage students in making music. Our Blues in the Schools (BITS) program began in 2006 and is free to schools.

Boise Blues Society ensures an active social calendar for local blues fans, organizing or co-sponsoring dozens of blues-focused events every year. We showcase local acts and bring in out-of-town musicians for performances and workshops.
