UK Blues Federation – News


A Federation to represent UK Blues and lead on the UK entry to the European Blues Challenge

UKBlues is a new organisation, one that is already an active Member of the European Blues Union (EBU). The EBU promotes Blues music, in all its forms, supporting the many long standing efforts of musicians, organisations, associations, venues, companies, and individuals in Europe. UKBlues is taking on that role for the UK and working with the EBU and stakeholders worldwide in the interests of British Blues music. With two patrons supporting the Federation’s aims and mission.

UKBlues – what we will do
It is the goal of UKBlues to build upon this profile and legacy to the benefit of all. Our
ongoing activities to this end will be many and varied. We believe greater co-operation and
interaction between stakeholders both here and abroad will facilitate, amongst many other
things, greater opportunities for artists and bands internationally, not least in terms of
airplay and gig/festival outreach. We also aim, through our website and newsletters and
other communications, to be an important information resource. 6th European Blues Challenge
