The Washington Blues Society is a non-profit all volunteer organization whose mission is to promote, preserve, and advance the culture and tradition of blues music as an art form.


The Blues Foundation’s Board of Directors recently voted to suspend all IBC 2021 activities, including the Keeping the Blues Alive Awards, and postpone the event to 2022. Sadly, we do not feel it would be safe for our community to come together in large crowds until the COVID-19 pandemic is under control and large gatherings are once again safe.

Please save the date for IBC Week 2022 – January 18th – January 22nd 
We look forward to seeing you in Memphis then!
