The Great Lakes Blues Society is accepting proposals from local musicians who would like to participate in our Blues in The Schools program. Each year we proudly present this program to schools in London, and the surrounding areas to educate students about Blues music through a variety of Blues artists, with the goal of keeping the Blues alive for future generations. Some of the artists we have had perform in the past include greats such as Billy Branch, Reverend Robert Jones, Terrence Simien, Fruteland Jackson, Guy Davis, and Mac Arnold, just to name a few.
This is a chance for you to help pass the Blues on to younger generations, reach a whole new audience, and get paid for it as well! To be considered for this unique and rewarding opportunity, please submit your proposal using the following criteria as a basis for your presentation:
historical regarding Blues music origins;
educational on both historical and musical levels;
entertaining to the 10 to 14-year-old age group; and
50 to 60 minutes in length.
All submissions must be from current or new members of the
Great Lakes Blues Society to be considered.
Please submit all proposals to:
