Since it's conception around August 2011, IBMD has been taking hold in the hearts and minds of thousands of blues lovers around the world as an idea who's time has come. But until now there has not been an actual date set or organized mechanism for physical events to take place around the world to celebrate & promote IBMD.
Celebrating an International Blues Music Day enhances the awareness, excitement, celebration and recognition of a truly American art form, it's many legends and practitioners, it's vast musical influence and the continuation and promotion of the blues. In addition IBMD has the unique potential to be one of the most important and exciting initiatives to further the cause of promoting blues music on a global scale for generations to come.
The campaign calls for up to $100,000 to create a viable, professional, international organization capable and tasked with honoring blues icons and the blues music genre year-round; culminating in hundreds of annual, worldwide events in celebration of IBMD. To enable and encourage more folks to listen to and learn about the music; and enjoy historic gems, culture, mythology and wealth of music of this all-American art form.
The IBMD website, office, promotions, and hundreds of simultaneous worldwide events will be the venues for serious blues fans, curious music lovers, and wide-eyed students to experience and participate in the unlimited potential of expanding the worldwide blues market place.
It will facilitate audience development , provide employment opportunities including thousands of potential gigs for blues musicians and it will expose, enlighten, educate, and entertain.
We see this initiative as having an unlimited potential.
International Blues Music Day
