About Grand County Blues Society
The Grand County Blues Society non-profit (501 c3) was created in 2002 to enhance the cultural existence of Grand County residents and to be a beacon for our friends and visitors that love escaping to the shadow of the Continental Divide. For more than a decade, the GCBS has produced 14 Blues Festivals, over 250 individual blues concerts, and has continued a Blues In The School effort throughout all of our county schools. Our other programs include our award winning Check Out The Music program, where instruments may be “check out” from a local library like a book.
And most importantly, our other program in its 13th year, Blue Star Connection has supplied over 57 Children’s Hospitals with valuable and plentiful collections of musical instruments for their music therapy departments. BSC has also gifted hundreds of individual children personal instruments. We continue to support the music therapy industry with an all-out effort and constant fundraising and to continue the mission. Music Therapy needs an advocate, and we are proud to be considered a front-runner. We have done all of this with an all-volunteer board, and a very loyal and generous membership.
