About the Canberra Blues Society

The Canberra Blues Society (Incorporated) is a ‘not-for-profit’ collective of like-minded individuals who are passionate about the art of traditional and contemporary blues music. One of our aims is to support family-friendly venues throughout the Capital Region that nurture and support local amateur and professional blues musicians. The Canberra Blues Society also aims to provide regular music jams, blues events and blues-related social activities for the enjoyment of its members.

We seek to establish an environment that will both educate and showcase blues music, blues music culture and the blues spirit to the wider community. We also hope to be a regular meeting place for people to become involved with others with similar musical interests.

We invite you to explore this site to find out more about the society and the blues!
