2008 Blues Music Awards
May 07 - May 08, 2008
The 29th Blues Music Awards will be Thursday May 8 at the Grand Casino and Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi. While the complete schedule of events is still unfolding, be sure to click on the Tunica Convention and Visitors Bureau logo to your left, to get an idea of the offerings in the area. We know that many nominees will be performing in Tunica and Clarksdale before and after the Awards and tours will be available to visit all the blues historical sites in the Delta, including the new Mississippi Blues Marker Trail, developed by 2008 Blues Music Awards sponsor, the Mississippi Development Authority, Division of Tourism, and the Mississippi Blues Commission.
The event brings together Blues performers, industry representatives and fans from all over the world to celebrate the best in Blues recordings and performances from the previous year. Each year, the Foundation present The Blues Music Awards to the artists selected by its members. They are universally recognized as the highest honor given to Blues artists. As always, a pre-party will immediately precede the Awards and feature the 2007 IBC winners.
The Blues Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Charter Members' Dinner will be held the night before on Wednesday, May 9. Contact The Blues Foundation about becoming a Charter Member in order to attend this star-studded event.
