From the President

Hello Blues Enthusiasts!

Planning for The Simply Texas Blues Festival is a year-round job.  We’re already deep in the trenches for our 14th annual festival and excited to be back in beautiful Downtown San Angelo.  The generosity of Toni Hunter, Fifi DuBois and their crew made it possible to hold our festival again this year.

We are pleased to announce that after this year’s round of Scholarship awards, we have exceeded $125,000 distributed since our inception in 2008!  This year we were blessed again to have the H.A. Baity Memorial Scholarship fund.  Our sincere thanks to the Family of this respected gentleman, and especially to Katie Reed for making it all possible.  Dr. Karen Cody and Dr. John English, from ASU have been instrumental in finding our applicants.  Many thanks to them for their efforts!  A list of Scholarship recipients is available here on our website.

Scholarships are also made possible through the generous donations of our Sponsors.  Without them, none of this would be possible!  Sponsorship is an excellent way to reach out to the community as well.  You can get more information on our Sponsors and packages by clicking on the Sponsors tab! 

Sadly, this will be my last year as President.  It has been an honor and a priviledge to carry on the goals of my predecessors.  Should anyone be interested in taking up the reins of this organization, please reach, otherwise, this is the final year of the Simply Texas Blues Festival.


Blessings in Blues,


Alexandra Cunningham
