It was our first Blues Fest and it was amazing. The younger generation playing on the Second Stage was wonderful. Can't wait to go again in 2019 Constance S. (2019)

About Grand County Blues Society: The Grand County Blues Society (GCBS) non-profit (501c3) was created in 2002 to enhance the cultural existence of Grand County residents and to be a beacon for our friends and visitors that love escaping to the shadow of the Continental Divide. For well over a decade, the GCBS has produced seventeen Blues Festivals, over two-hundred and sixty individual blues concerts, and has continued it's support of our three primary programs.
Blues In The Schools is a program we fund that offers blues music education to all schools county-wide by offering blues concerts and student interaction with the artists.
Check Out The Music is a program in five of our local libraries where students and adults may check out musical instruments and education materials like a book.
Blue Star Connection is our most notable program and in it's seventeenth year, Blue Star Connection has supplied over sixty-five Children's Hospitals with valuable and plentiful collections of musical instruments for their music therapy departments. BSC has also gifted over eight-hundred of individual children personal instruments. We continue to support the music therapy industry with an all-out effort and constant fund-raising and to continue the mission. Music Therapy? needs an advocate, and we are proud to be considered a front-runner. We have done all of this with an all-volunteer board, and a very loyal and generous membership.
