Our Mission

King Biscuit Blues Festival is a part of a year round program run by The Sonny Boy Blues Society in order to preserve the blues.
This includes the culture and history associated with Blues music.
The Sonny Boy Blues Society provides music education programs, hosts cultural events and seeks to support emerging artist and blues legends
.

BluesAid

The emergence of the Blues into the mainstream was not an easy road. By the time the public had really caught on, many of the musicians had passed their prime. They missed the benefits and other royalties that many of the artist of today are priviledged to have. They have to live on what they earned while playing.
BlueAid provides support to Blues musicians who haven't had the benefit of musicians unions and royalty payments. BluesAid underwrites medical care, medicine and sadly even final expenses. BluesAid strives to thank musicians for their gifts of music by lending a helping hand and by perserving their memory.
