ARBA Youth in Blues Program 2021 Closing concert

A brilliant afternoon and a full-house at the ARBA Youth in Blues end of program concert held at Star Theatres on Sunday 31st October!
 Congratulations to all the participants for their efforts and to program mentors Erica Graf, Evan Whetter, Mario Marino and Steve Wilson 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 360 members of the Adelaide Roots and Blues Association. Without you, none of our programs and initiatives would be possible.
The future of blues in SA is in good hands!

ARBA Youth in Blues Mission Statement

The mission of the ARBA Youth in Blues program is to educate, nurture and foster the next generation of South Australian blues musicians. Participants will be educated and mentored by experienced professional musicians.
They will learn about the history of the blues, blues musical forms, song writing, stagecraft and marketing. They will get the opportunity to connect, rehearse and perform with other young musicians. There will also be public performance opportunities. 

The program will also aim to introduce the participants and their families to the wider blues community and foster connections that will continue well past the formal program duration.

 The ARBA Youth in Blues Program is an important contributor to the ongoing sustainability and longevity of the blues scene in South Australia.

Programs are run annually with the next program due in the later part of 2022.
