The Long Island Blues Society a not for profit affiliate of the blues foundation and blues hall of fame in Memphis.
Our mission is the support of Blues music as a living art form.
We do this through Festivals, fundraisers, workshops and breakout groups that explore the rich and diverse culture of the blues and it’s influence on American music.
Each year, the LIBS seeks out blues music for submission to the international challenge in Memphis.
Our competition is a focal point for all Long Islanders to experience Blues music and participate in this grand celebration of all elements of the genre.
