KEEPING THE BLUES ALIVE
“The Blues had a baby and they named it Rock & Roll.”
― Muddy Waters
PROVIDING BLUES EXPERIENCES
From live performances to festivals to museum exhibitions to web-based experiences, we seek to keep the blues alive by providing blues experiences to the growing number of blues fans. We are working and partnering with other nonprofits that have similar missions and goals. The music of Muddy Waters continues to grow and find new fans over 30 years after his death. The legend of the blues never dies; new musicians are cropping up and continuing to preserve the blues in its purest form.
SUPPORTING BLUES MUSICIANS
By working with groups who support blues musicians and blues music, the Muddy Waters Foundation provides support emerging blues artists. We see to give future generations an awareness of the heritage and history of the Blues as well as preserving the historical significance of the Blues through exposure and experience.
BLUES IN SCHOOL
