About Blues and Music - Bliuzinės vietos

The Blues Hall of Fame is a listing of people who have significantly contributed to blues music. Started in 1980 by the Blues Foundation, it honors those who have performed, recorded, or documented blues.

The Blues Foundation is an American nonprofit corporation headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, that is affiliated with more than 135 Blues organizations, and with a membership spanning some twenty countries.
Founded in 1980, a twenty-five person Board of Directors governs the Foundation whose stated mission is to preserve Blues music history. On its formation, the Foundation organized the annual W.C. Handy awards to "give recognition of the finest in blues performances and recordings."

The award has since been re-named "The Blues Music Awards."
