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 at the Bill Aylor Memorial River Stage.  The acoustics of this beautiful outdoor theater are amazing and we’re happy to be partnering with The City of San Angelo in our efforts to bring stellar entertainment to San Angelo.

We are pleased to announce that after this year’s round of Scholarship awards, we have exceeded $111,000 distributed since our inception in 2008!  This year we were blessed with three Memorial Scholarship Awards, two awards coming from the H.A. Baity Memorial Scholarship fund, and one from the MD Shurley Memorial Scholarship fund.  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!
