Boise Blues Society has received a $1000 grant from the City of Boise, Arts & History Department to support our Blues in the Schools (BITS) program. Contributions like this help us reach out to students in the Boise area.
Part of our mission to “promote and preserve blues music” includes providing musicians as coaches and performers to introduce blues music to children and adults alike. BITS, which began in 2006, is part of our outreach effort and is provided at no cost to participating schools. Through BITS, Boise Blues Society brings a taste of blues music, and the lessons that go with it, into schools.
