2022 ARBA Youth in Blues Program
The 2022 ARBA Youth in Blues program concluded on Sunday 31st of October with a very entertaining closing concert at Star Theatres (see photos above).
This Year's 22 participants ranged in age from 11 to 25 and they performed in 5 different ensembles. Our young blues musicians and singers showed what they had learned during this year's program by playing songs that featured a range of different blues styles.
Those in attendance were left in no doubt of the wonderful talent our young people possess and we all look forward to seeing more of them onstage in future!
All of the program participants have been given complementary membership of The Adelaide Roots and Blues Association.
Congratulations to all the participants for their efforts and to program mentors Erica Graf, Evan Whetter, Mario Marino, Steve Wilson and Sebastian Brook for a job well done!
A big thanks to all at Star Theatres, to the ARBA volunteers and to everyone who attended the various fundraisers that allow us to undertake this annual program (we receive no government funding).
Finally a massive shout out to the 370 members of the Adelaide Roots and Blues Association. Without you, none of our programs and initiatives would be possible.
