The Mississippi Valley Blues Society and Crawford Brew Works have partnered to raise money in providing Blues education outreach for area music educators and students.

During March and April, Crawford Brew Works will host a Blues ‘n’ Brews Concert Series as part of the Mississippi Valley Blues Society’s (MVBS) fundraising efforts for its education outreach program, Blues in the Schools.

MVBS will have representatives onsite to answer questions and take direct donations, while Crawford Brew Works (CBW) will donate a portion of sales during the performances. CBW will provide funding for the concert series. The Blues ‘n’ Brews Concert Series kicks off on March 4th featuring national touring and award-winning Blues artists!

“We are excited to explore a new approach to fundraising that creates a positive relationship with the local business community and ultimately supports our local music educators and students,” said Bob Clevenstine, Fundraising Chairman for the MVBS.

“We plan for our “Crawford Culture of Care” initiative to be a core part of our culture at the brewery, and to have a business model that goes above and beyond in our efforts to support local organizations that put intentional care toward our community and the people who are a part of it,” said Tom Taylor, Crawford Brew Works General Manager.

Founded in 1984, the mission of the Mississippi Valley Blues Society is to ensure the future of a uniquely American art form by fostering greater public appreciation through performance, education, and preservation of the Blues Heritage.
