The Alabama Blues Project




 712 25th Avenue, Northport, AL 35476

Our mission is the preservation of blues music as a traditional and contemporary art form through interactive programs that educate and entertain. With educational programs, live performance, exhibits, and the development of archival and curriculum materials, we increase awareness of the role blues music has played in the development of popular American music, with a special focus on Alabama’s contribution to that history. Our programs reach a wide variety of audiences, including at-risk and troubled youth, and our unique blues camps pass on Alabama’s rich blues culture to the next generation while teaching self-esteem, discipline, cross cultural understanding, interaction, and teamwork.
