Blues music has been an important genre of music for decades. While many of the older artists have passed on, there are hundreds if not thousands of new musicians keeping the blues alive every day with their playing and their new songs and albums. If you want to know how to keep blues music alive, all you need to do is look around at some of the upcoming blues musicians who will carry the torch well into the future and see what they’re doing to make sure the blues is always around. 

Blues music isn’t just alive; it’s thriving. Thousands of young artists are getting into the genre every year, and while there may be only one or two superstars in the mix, there are hundreds of up-and-comers that show promise to become the next big thing.

Mississippi Valley Blues Fest is a great way to see how a variety of artists have interpreted and performed their art form. It’s exciting to be in an atmosphere that’s driven by creativity and not commerce. The Blues Fest is an amazing way to get immersed in some great new sounds. Go see some of your favorite bands live or discover new artists. Either way, you’ll be supporting live music while staying up-to-date on new artists and catching up with your favorites.
