Blues in the Schools!
Our recent Blues in the Schools was an awesome success. The students (all 700+ of them) really got into it and from teacher feedback learned a number of new things that will help them in their studies of Arkansas History and as they read a novel in Language Arts about the historic events in Birmingham Alabama in 1963. Ozark Blues Society wishes to thank all the teachers and staff at both schools as well as district support we received to help bring our love of blues music to the seventh grade students in Fayetteville Public Schools. Thanks also go out to the many local musicians that support Blues in the Schools (even when it requires a 7:15 AM load in!) At this past week's event we had Jimmy Wayne Garrett and The Liberty Bell Rhythm Band featuring Ocie Fisher. We also wish to than the Arkansas Democrat Gazette for supporting us through photographs! Check them out below!

About the Ozark Blues Society of Northwest Arkansas
Keeping the Blues Alive in the Natural State
The Ozark Blues Society was formed in May 2001 and incorporated as the Ozark Blues Society of NW Arkansas, Inc., a non-profit organization, on 1/15/2002. The Society was approved as a 501(c)(3) public charity on 5/6/2002. The Ozark Blues Society is staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers.
The purpose of the Ozark Blues Society is to foster the development in the community of an appreciation of all types of blues music by promoting and producing meetings, lectures, seminars, concerts, musical productions and entertainment involving the blues; to promote public knowledge of local, national, and international blues music; and to promote historical research into blues music in order to perpetuate the memory, spirit, and music of blues artists who have not received just popular recognition.
