Youth In Blues Program

Youth in Blues is a FREE program initiative of the MBAS, and held annually to encourage the next generation of Blues musicians. The Youth in Blues Program aims to help budding young Blues musicians and vocalists gain confidence and experience with the guidance and mentorship of established Blues musicians and music industry professionals.

The 2017 Youth in Blues Program expert music industry/professional musician mentors are : Wayne Jury (facilitator/co-ordinator) with Geoff Achison, Sweet Felicia, Rebecca Davey and Matt Frederick.

Youth in Blues offers young people a place to show their musical talent in a fun, encouraging, supportive learning environment with like-minded Blues music supporters.

Participants from previous years are also welcome and encouraged to re-enrol and continue their learning.
