The Cascade Blues Association is the Proud Recipient of the Blues Foundation’s “Keeping The Blues Alive” Award for 2003!

This award is presented to the blues society that has been the most active in the past year through its newsletter, educational efforts and community outreach programs. It’s the highest attainable honor for non-performers in the blues industry, created to recognize the behind-the-scenes professionals and fans who keep the Blues thriving and forging ahead.
