Baby Blues Showcase
St. Louis is drenched in a rich tradition of Blues Music. The likes of Albert King, Roosevelt Sykes, Tommy Bankhead, James Crutchfield, Peetie Wheatstraw, and Lonnie Johnson have all come from the breeding grounds of St. Louis.

While older musicians like Henry Townsend, Bennie Smith, Boo Boo Davis, Johnnie Johnson, and Arthur Williams currently lead the large group continuing the tradition of St. Louis Blues – there are fewer and fewer young musicians even considering playing blues.

The goal of the 1st Annual Baby Blues Showcase was to feature the small group of young St. Louisians playing blues. Brian Curran, one of St. Louis’ youngest fingerstyle guitarists, hosted and performed at this years Showcase which featured: Rob Garland & the Blue Monks, The Bottoms Up Blues Gang, Goodnight Irene, The Kevin Leman Group, Matt Watson and many special guests.

On Dec. 1st, 2002, it was the pleasure of STLBlues to be witness to a great tradition down at BB's, with the new blood of the Blues continuing on with the rich heritage of St. Louis Blues. The Baby Blues showcase featured some of St. Louis finest, with the elder being 26 years old! Over $500 was raised for the Blues Fund, a St. Louis Blues Society charity for musicians. The St. Louis Blues Society is one of the few St. Louis organizations actively promoting and preserving St. Louis Blues. The Society’s Mission Fund raises money for musicians who have fallen ill, are unable to work and can’t keep up with their bills.

Here's just a sample, get out and support these local musicians every chance you get!
