Blues for Everyone

Blues for Everyone teaches music lovers of all ages the joy of Blues music, fulfilling one of the stated missions of the Minnesota Blues Society “ to educate and promote the past, present and future of Blues music in Minnesota”.

Blues for Everyone workshops are scheduled through schools, community organizations, festivals and events. Workshops are custom designed to meet the needs of the audience and can include guitar, harmonica, piano, vocals, or Blues history.

Our most popular workshop provides kids with a free harmonica and lesson.
