Grand County Blues Society presents:

Future Of The Blues


Blues From The Top has been a fertile place for young musicians and teens. We believe we have to hand off this art form we call the “blues.” Each year the first act on the main stage has been a young friend of the blues and the GCBS. Its our way of making the future come alive. Along with a young artist kicking off our signature event, we have provided a stage and a sound system for kids from all over the U.S. to come to Winter Park and lay down some of their music. While the big stage is making set changes the music we have been hearing has been passionate and well done.

The Future of the Blues stage has become a fan favorite too. During the breaks, people gather around the stage and cheer the bands on. Some of our young artist are moving up to the big stage and starting to get playing time all over the country. Its been very rewarding to help the process of teaching young people how to manage performing at a big outdoor festival. We also have been providing them a “jam” venue for Saturday night, where they get to run their own music show. Its been hard to keep the adults out of the good seats though.

Over the years we have watched the likes of Michaela Rae Knox, Tomara Conrad, Austin Young, Taylor Marvin, Sam and Sadie Johnson, Robert and Thomas Meyer, Jaden Carlson, Grace Ritter and others cut their teeth with the main stage acts looking on with great interest. We are really proud of all the kids — and all the parents — that put out the effort to make this happen!
