About Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation
Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation was founded by Joe Bonamassa, an American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter who not only opened for B.B. King when he was 12 years old, but has also released 15 solo albums over the past 15 years. The mission of the Foundation is to further music education by funding scholarships and providing music education resources to schools in need.
Blues – the unique American art form, has evolved over the past 100 years from African American poetry, spirituals and work-songs into a thriving music movement. In fact, many genres of music can trace their roots back to the Blues. Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation fosters and highlights the genre’s inspirational history through Joe’s personal experience and growth within the Blues/Rock community over the past 20+ years. Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation fuels the passion for music by funding programs and scholarships for students and teachers who possess the desire, but lack the resources or access to achieve their potential within the music industry.
