Keeping the Blues Alive Award Recipients Announced
In mid-July, the KBA winning festival, one of North America's under-appreciated gems, took place. It's become the "ski area" version of the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise
Situated in historic downtown Woonsocket, Rhode Island is Chan's Eggrolls, Jazz and Blues, a Keeping The Blues Alive Award Recipient and one of the most inconspicuous & unique blues clubs in America.
The Blues Foundation is moving to South Main next year, fulfilling a 30-year-old dream for a permanent home to showcase the music and the artists who make it.
On the heels of achieving its all-time high membership (quickly approaching 4,000 total), The Blues Foundation will honor 21 individuals and organizations with its 2011 Keeping the Blues Alive (KBA) Award during a recognition brunch on Saturday, February 5, 2011, in Memphis, Tennessee.
