The National Blues Museum (NBM) celebrates the blues as the foundation of American music. This not-for-profit cultural and civic centerpiece will drive international tourism, educate and entertain visitors, and add to the cultural diversity of the MX.
In addition to performances, meetings and education in the NBM Theater, the museum’s public programs will include:
- Film and documentary screenings
- Acoustic performances
- Q&A sessions with national artists and music industry professionals
- Onsite and in-classroom opportunities to explore the history of blues music and its influence on rock and roll, hip hop, jazz, gospel and R&B.
Construction is scheduled to start in July 2013 but we have a long way to go before this is a reality. There have been some large donations but please make your contribution to honor this great history today and we'll get the museum open in 2014! DONATE NOW!
