Edmonton Blues Society was formed in 2006 because of a strong desire to showcase and promote local blues musicians to help launch their careers and to bring blues to people in a friendly setting. We are a "not for profit" society 100% run by volunteers and a board of directors.
For the past six years, EBS has proudly sponsored the Memphis Bound Blues Competition open to all Northern Alberta blues musician with a self-produced CD. The winners of the "band" and "solo/duo" categories go to Memphis, TN to compete in the annual International Blues Competition (IBC). We are proud to say we co-sponsored Ann Vriend, Rooster Davis, Boogie Patrol, The Dylan Farrell Band, Two Blue, Graham Guest, Jenie Thai and Joe Nolan.
In February 2018 we successfully held our first annual WINTER BLUES FESTIVAL and are planning the second Winter Blues Festival. Watch for details in the upcoming months.
